I’ll soon be shutting down this blog and using Pursiful.com as my main website. Please make a note of it, and see you over there!
Sunday Inspiration: Forgiveness
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.
Sunday Inspiration: Tears
Pay attention to your tears. They tell you who you are.
Sunday Inspiration: Do What You Can
Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
Sunday Inspiration: Anger
Where there is anger, there is always pain underneath.
Sunday Inspiration: Good Works
God does not need your good works, but your neighbor does.
Sunday Inspiration: Clinging to Hate
I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.
Sunday Inspiration: Educating the Heart
When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.
Sunday Inspiration: Escapism
J. R. R. Tolkien, undisputedly a most fluent speaker of this language, was criticized in his day for indulging his juvenile whim of writing fantasy, which was then considered—as it still is in many quarters—an inferior form of literature and disdained as mere “escapism.” “Of course it is escapist,” he cried. “That is its glory! When a solider is a prisoner of war it is his duty to escape—and take as many with him as he can.” He went on to explain, “The moneylenders, the know-nothings, the authoritarians have us all in prison; if we value the freedom of the mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as possible.”
—Stephen R. Lawhead
Sunday Inspiration: Being Wrong
Since I do not live by being right, I am not destroyed by being wrong.
