Why is it that we are constantly proving the world wrong but never proving ourselves right?
Don’t go around thinking the world owes you a living. It was here first.
The world is more beautiful than anything I can imagine; and so I open my eyes.
It is strange that the world accepts enthusiasm in every realm but the spiritual.
Look up at the moon; don’t think about yourself.
How the world loves her sad songs!
The world needs to witness the best positive version of you, because being fake doesn’t do the world any good.
In the world in which we live, we give most attention to satisfying the appetites of the body and practically none to the soul . . . We become fat physically and materially, while spiritually we are lean, weak, and anemic.
When you are unsure whether or not something is wrong, ask yourself these questions: Does this glorify God? Can I offer a prayer of thanksgiving for it? Does it draw me closer to Christ, or does it make me preoccupied with this world? Will it harm my health or hurt me in some other way? Will it cause someone else to stumble spiritually or morally? I have never forgotten what a wise Christian said to me many years ago: “When in doubt-don’t!
Things are what they are, even when you don’t know what they are.
