Wise Words For The Man Of God

“Leaders need the head of a scholar, the heart of a child, and the hide of a rhinoceros”–David Dockery.

“Kindness is the oil that lubricates the machinery of life”–Mark Graham.

“When you change the way you look at things. the things you look at change”–Wayne Dyer.

“A preacher is like every other redeemed sinner. His soul is always a battleground between self and the Savior. If the Lamb of Calvary does not possess him, the lion of deceit will destroy him. The idolatry of self always leads to a devastating fall, and never so swiftly as when the sinner is a preacher. The preacher who is both wise and winsome will avoid making himself the hero of his sermon. He will sometimes be dramatic, but he will never be theatrical. He will never put on a display of his learning. He will not leave the impression that what happens to him is important, but what happens to Jesus Christ is of superlative importance. To this end, he had better humble himself under the mighty hand of God”–Reg Dunlap.

“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves”–Jesus, Matthew 10:16.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; be not frightened, neither be dismayed; for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go”–Joshua 1:9.

“Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you you shall go, and whatever I command you you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, says the Lord”–Jeremiah 1:7-8.

  1. Thank you for those profound thoughts.

“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.” Henri Bergson quotes (French Philosopher, 1927 Nobel Prize in Literature, 1859-1941) does not rate very high as philosophers go, as far as I am concerned. However, as the saying goes, “Even a blind hog finds an acorn from time to time,” so is my perception of this famous quote of his. It has the “Ring of Truth” regarding general perception or understanding herein addressed: why “some see what is obviously before them and others are oblivious to the same presentation.” Ed Matthew from Prayer Band comment.

    Another profound observation was made famous by G. K. Chesterton of approximately the same period in English Literature: “There is a road from the eye to heart that does not go through the intellect.”
    G. K. Chesterton who was born later and died earlier than Bergson also said:
    “A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it.”
    “To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.”
    “How you think when you lose determines how long it will be until you win.”
    “It isn’t that they can’t see the solution. It’s that they can’t see the problem.”
    “The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost.”
    “Wit is a sword; it is meant to make people feel the point as well as see it.”
