Melissa at Breath of Life hosts a weekly carnival called The Week In Words,which involves sharing some words from your reading. Melissa explains,
“Playing along is simple, just write a post of the quote(s) that spoke to you during the week (attributed, of course) and link back here [at Melissa‘s]. They can be from any written source, i.e. magazine, newspaper, blog, book. The only requirement is that they be words you read.”
I like this idea because I often will see a quote that really speaks to me, but then I forget it. Just recording them here helps me remember them a little better.
Here are a few words of wisdom from the past week’s reading:
From Warren Wiersbe’s With the Word, p.28:
Sometimes the most spiritual thing we can do is take a nap!
These two were from a friend’s Facebook:
“Keep out of your life all that will keep Christ out of your mind.” – Anonymous
“The way to know whether you’ve made an idol in your heart is when you’re either willing to sin in order to get it or sin because you can’t have it.” – Anonymous
Seen at ivman:
“Being missions-minded is more than paying someone else to make disciples somewhere else.” – Drew Conley
Seen at Practical Theology For Women:
“The Christian gospel is that I am so flawed that Jesus had to die for me, yet I am so loved and valued that Jesus was glad to die for me. This leads to deep humility and deep confidence at the same time. It undermines both swaggering and sniveling. I cannot feel superior to anyone, and yet I have nothing to prove to anyone. I do not think more of myself nor less of myself. Instead, I think of myself less.”
Tim Keller, The Reason For God
I’ve not read the book and I don’t know anything about Tim Keller, but I liked this quote.
