Quotes and Verses
“On the parable of the Good Samaritan: “I imagine that the first question the priest and Levite asked was: ‘If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?’ But by the very nature of his concern, the good Samaritan reversed the question: ‘If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?” ~Martin Luther King Jr.
“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.” ~Edmund Burke

“There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don’t care who gets the credit.” ~Ronald Reagan
“This is the true joy in life — being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.” ~George Bernard Shaw
“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:15
“In about the same degree as you are helpful, you will be happy.” ~Karl Reiland

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:13–14
“I don’t want my life to be defined by what is etched on a tombstone. I want it to be defined by what is etched in the lives and hearts of those I’ve touched.” ~Steve Maraboli
I’ve kept this post short today,
because I want to share a must see video message with you.
The United States of America is a nation of laws. But laws don’t inspire greatness, excellence, or virtue. In fact, when we confuse what is legal with what is moral, everyone looks for a loophole to serve his or her own interests. The rich rule the poor, women become commodities, and children become victims. The law causes us to look down. It takes something else to inspire us to look up.
This message by Andy Stanley is a must see for every American.

Love God – Love Others.
Be Blessed – Be a Blessing.
