Before you speak, listen.
Before you write, think.
Before you spend, earn.
Before you invest, investigate.
Before you criticize, wait.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you quit, try.
Before you retire, save.
Before you die, give.
― William Arthur Ward
I have learned two very important things in Life.
Don’t write yourself out of God’s story by thinking that because you can’t do everything, you shouldn’t do anything. The anything you can do is a significant thing in the story God’s writing.
Your anything might be someone else’s everything. ~ Louie Giglio
My daughter, Shelby asked me, “What is God’s purpose for my life?”
I answered, “Be a sharp pencil, so you can write the name of Jesus on the heart of everyone you meet!”
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.”
Ephesians 3:16-17a NIV
