The Eyes of the Lord Are on the Righteous

“I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.”–Eric Liddell, Chariots of Fire.

“The most successful people are those who are good at Plan B.”–James Yorke.

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers”–Galatians 6:10.

“Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.”–The Hymn “Come, Ye Disconsolate.”

“The command ‘Be ye perfect’ is not idealistic gas. Nor is it a command to do the impossible. He [God] is going to make us into creatures that can obey that command.”–C.S. Lewis.

“Even blessed people can blow it.”–David Hankins, Executive Director of the Lousiana Baptist Convention, urging Christian leaders to be faithful in their service.

“Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. . . . For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil”–1 Peter 3:8-12.

“It is the inner life of the soul that we must aim to transform, and then behavior will naturally and easily follow. But not the reverse.”–Dallas Willard.
