A potpourri of inspirational thoughts on several topics.

ON LOVE:
There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up. To ease another's heartache is to forget one's own. A child's prayer: "Dear God, make all the bad people good, and make all the good people nice." You never so touch the ocean of God's love as when you forgive & love your enemies. --Corrie Ten Boom --Corrie Ten Boom Love can wait to give; it is lust that can't wait to get. Encouragement is like premium gasoline. 1John 4:8 It helps to take the knock out of living. Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do them beautifully. A smile of encouragement at the right moment may act like sunlight on a closed-up flower --it may be the turning point for a struggling

“He that loveth not knoweth --Josh McDowell not God; for--Josh McDowelllove!” God is

ON CHRISTIANITY:
If your Christianity won't work where you are, it won't work anywhere. “If any man will come after Me, let Some people treat Christian truth like chewing gum. him deny himself, and for hours, They will chew it over in discussiontake up his cross but never swallow it. Me. daily, and follow If you are a Christian, you are savecitizen of this For whosoever will not a his life world trying to get to Heaven; you are a citizen of shall lose it: but whosoever world. will Heaven making your way through this lose his spiritual My not religious nuts. God wants life for fruit sake, the same shall Blessed are the flexible… save it.” for they shall not be bent out of shape. Luke 9:23-24 The Christian is called upon to live a supernatural life, & has been given the power to live

ON GREATNESS:
I believe the first test of a truly great man is his humility. The measure of a man's greatness is not the number of servants he has, but the number of people he serves. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them. Great men, like the tallest mountain, retain their majesty & stability during the most severe storm.

"But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.”

It takes a great man to give sound advice tactfully, Matthew 23:11 but a greater man to accept it graciously. Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great. --Mark Twain

ON GIVING:
When I have any money. I get rid of it as quickly as possible, lest it findit shall bemy heart. “Give, and a way into given unto

When it comes to giving until it hurts, Luke 6:38 most of us have a very low threshold of pain. Some give their mite; some give with all their might;

ON ENTHUSIASM:
"Every great movement in the annals of history," said Emerson, "is the triumph of enthusiasm.“ It is derived, that magic name, from two Greek words: "en" meaning "in" & "theos" meaning "God." Enthusiasm is literally "God in us." The enthusiastic man is one who speaks as if he were possessed by God. We rarely support the things we support with the enthusiasm with which we oppose the things we oppose. Enthusiasm is a good engine, but it needs intelligence for a driver. Enthusiasm & persistence can make an average person superior; Ecclesiastic 9:10a KJV indifference & lethargy can make a superior person average. Enthusiasm is the all-essential human jet propellant. It is the driving force which elevates men to miracle workers. It begets boldness, courage; kindles confidence; overcomes doubts. It creates endless energy, the source of all accomplishment.

“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might”
