"....you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love." How counter cultural in today's society and yet how necessary as a Christian value in respecting others and showing Christ's love.
Another saying resonated with me "Evangelism by Attraction". It reminded me of the phrase " In preaching the Gospel, sometimes we have to use words."
Did you know that "the tongue is the only blunt instrument which grows sharper with constant use?"
Charles Kettering ( 1876-1958) said "Every father should remember that one day his son will follow his example instead of his advice."
Teresa of Avila ( 1515-1582) " Christ has no body now but yours; no hands no feet on earth but yours; yours are the eyes through which Christ looks with compassion into the world; yours are the feet with which Christ walks to do good; yours are the hands with which Christ blesses the world."
Wisdom truly is timeless.
