Life is the Sum of our Choices

“The curse of the modern pastor is speaking to people who do not want to hear but rather hear only what they already think or want (2 Timothy 4:3)”–Waylon Bailey.

“My true knowlege of self comes not from my searching myself but God searching me”–Watchman Nee.

“People are backsliders on their knees long before they backslide openly in the eyes of the world”–J.C. Ryle.

“We must be careful about the following, equally bad, though opposite, errors, which our generation can make concerning demons. One is to believe they do not exist. The other one is to believe they exist and to have an unhealthy interest in them. In his book The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis has a demon write to his nephew who is in the world in order to lead men astray. He says: ‘At first you must try to let them believe we do not exist. If they know we exist, then you must cause them to think and talk about us as much as possible’”–Corrie ten Boom.

“Never ruin an apology with an excuse”–Kimberly Johnson.

“Prayer means not always talking to HIm, but waiting before Him till the dust settles and the stream runs clear”–F.B. Meyer.

“Life is the sum of all the choices we have made. We need help with choices. When we make bad choices, we get the fruit of our bad choices. When we make Godly choices, we enjoy the fruit of righteousness. Earthly, demonic wisdom produces disorder and every evil practice (James 3: 16). God gives Godly wisdom to those who seek Him. Godly wisdom produces the fruit of righteousness. Godly wisdom is pure, peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere (James 3: 17)”–Waylon Bailey.
