How Should We Respond to A World of Violence, Immorality, and Selfishness?

“Before you go to sleep tonight, I challenge every single one of you to do something nice for a complete stranger. Our world needs that”–Bo Jackson.

“Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive our darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive our hate, only love can do that”–Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“If you want to lead others, you’ve got to have their trust, and you can’t have their trust without integrity”–Corporate CEO.

Scripture will endure long after human opinions are forgotten: “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever” (Isaiah 40:8). Whether the subject is gay marriage or “death with dignity” or any other moral question of the day, what matters most is what God says. It is therefore vital that we base our beliefs on his timeless truth–Jim Denison.

“One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed”–Proverbs 11:24-25.

“How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child”–King Lear, Shakespeare.
