Live for Him

“Every day of my life, I must remind myself that I am a child of God and have God the Holy Spirit indwelling and empowering me to say no to sin and yes to God. Every day I must live in the truth that I can present the members of my body for righteousness because of this indwelling power of the Holy Spirit. Every day I must make it my will to live for God. I must. I can. I will.” ~ Kay Arthur

Best Preparation

"The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today." 

~ Elbert Hubbard

God's Trust Fund

My take on tithing in America is that it’s a middle-class way of robbing God. Tithing to the church and spending the rest on your family is not a Christian goal. It’s a diversion. The real issue is: How shall we use God’s trust fund—namely, all we have—for His glory? In a world with so much misery, what lifestyle should we call our people to live? What example are we setting? John Piper

Men Without Chests...

"We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.” ~ C.S. Lewis (The Abolition of Man)

Use or Misuse of Money

"One verse in every six in the first three Gospels relates, either directly or indirectly, to money. Sixteen of our Lord’s 44 parables deal with the use or misuse of money. A loving, joyful, liberal giving to the Lord’s work is an acid test of a spiritual heart, pleasing to God." ~ William E. Allen

Be thankful...

"Be thankful for what you have. Your life, not matter how bad you think it is, is someone else's fairy tale." ~ Wayne Ayeni


"What I really lack is to be clear in my mind what I am to do, not what I am to know…. The thing is to understand myself, to see what God really wishes me to do…. What good would it do me to be able to explain the meaning of Christianity if it had no deeper significance for me and for my life?" ~ Soren Kierkegaard

As He Intends

"If you are not satisfied with the quality of your worship, don't be too quick to blame your environment. Look first to your own heart. Allow God to refine your heart until it is pleasing to Him, and you will be free to worship as He intends." ~ Henry Blackaby

Most Significant Days

"We never know the trials that await us in the days ahead. We may not be able to see the light through our struggles, but we can believe that those days, as in the life of Job, will be the most significant we are called upon to live." ~ Robert Collyer

He Will Supply

"I was once young and now I am old, but not once have I been witness to God’s failure to supply my need when first I had given for the furtherance of His work. He has never failed in His promise, so I cannot fail in my service to Him." ~ William Carey,

Tithing Isn't...

"Tithing isn’t something I do to clear my conscience so I can do whatever I want with the 90 percent—it also belongs to God! I must seek his direction and permission for whatever I do with the full amount. I may discover that God has different ideas than I do." ~ Randy Alcorn (Money, Possessions and Eternity)

He's Looking for...

"Do we know the power of our supernatural weapon? Do we dare to use it with authority of a faith that commands as well as asks? God baptizes us with holy audacity and divine confidence! He is looking not for great people but for people who will dare to prove the greatness of their God" ~ . A.B. Simpson

A Vending Machine?

"No heresy has been more sin inspired than belief in formulas: do this and God will bless, in this way. Formulas put us in control and reduce God to a vending machine." ~ Larry Crabb

Lucky Charms? No!

"We've handpicked verses here and there and treated them like lucky charms. 'If I take this one and this one and this one, and I speak them aloud enough times, I'll get my $100,000...or my freedom....or my healing.' "  ~ Dutch Sheets

Joy Threshold

In very difficult circumstance, we decide if it significant enough to steal our joy. What is your joy threshold? What does it take for you to lose your joy?" Henry Blackaby

Resist satan

"With regard to satan, our assignment is to trust in the victory that Christ already achieved and daily resist him with the truth of his defeat, as Jesus did." Henry Blackaby

Discipline of Prayer

"The discipline of prayer is the intentional, concentrated, and regular effort to create space for God. Everything and everyone around us wants to fill up every bit of space in our lives and so make us not only occupied people but preoccupied people as well." ~ Henri Nouwen

HIS Assets

Learn to Serve

"I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know; the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve." ~ Albert Schweitzer

Give More than You Can Spare

"I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusements, etc., is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little. If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot do because our charitable expenditures excludes them." ~ C. S. Lewis

Opposition in Service

"As you serve God you will surely experience much opposition. When this happens you need to know who you are, who you are not, who is the enemy you are facing and who is the Lord you are serving." ~ Brother Yun

Worry Treadmill

"Today we are invited to get off the worry treadmill and cast all our anxiety on Christ." ~ Jerry Porter

Give and Live

"In the Holy Land are two ancient bodies of water. Both are fed by the Jordan River. In one, fish play and roots find sustenance. In the other, there is no splash of fish, no sound of bird, no leaf around. The difference is not in the Jordan, for it empties into both, but in the Sea of Galilee: for every drop taken in one goes out. It gives and lives. The other gives nothing. And it is called the Dead Sea." ~ William Sloane Coffin

Ministry Is...

"Ministry is a burden-bearing, weeping with them that weep, rejoicing with them that rejoice, serving and caring for those whom the world despises, and helping them whom the world would trample under foot, digging in the pit and rescuing from sin and despair those who otherwise would perish. This is ministry–the ministry of Christ–whether there is any churchly recognition or not." ~ Phineas F. Bresee

Money Does Not...

"Regardless of what happens, remember that money does not give you identity or fulfillment; it only serves to empower or prohibit the fulfillment of the life purpose that God has ordained for you." ~ Chuck Bentley

"... inspiration is easy. Implementation is the hard part." ~ Bob Taylor


"It is apparent now that many think Christianity is jolly good fun - another and higher form of entertainment; because Christ has done all the suffering. He has shed all the tears. He has carried all the crosses. So we have but to enjoy all the benefits of His heartbreak. The 'work of Chirst' has been stressed until it has eclipsed the Person of Christ." ~ A. W. Tozer

Attitude Toward Money

What Is Heaven Like?

A man on his deathbed turned to his physician and mumbled, “What is Heaven like, Doctor?” How could the physician describe Heaven in such brief moments? As his mind searched for an answer for his friend, the doctor heard his dog scratching at the door. “Can you hear my dog scratching at your door?” inquired the physician. The sick man assured him that he could. “Well,” the doctor said, “Heaven must be like that. My dog does not know what is in this room. He only knows he wants to be with me. So it is with Heaven! Our Master is there. That is all we need to know!” ~James Jeremiah (The Place Called Heaven)

Tragic Irony

"Our gratitude often contains a tragic irony. We think we are being spiritual by thanking Him for things, but we may end up thanking Him for our own idols." ~ Chris Tiegreen


"Faith does not make love and obedience unnecessary, but on the contrary, fosters the growth of love and obedience. Christian perfection is the love and obedience which faith in Christ initiates and develops." ~ Mildred Wynkoop
