anger

So, then, my beloved brothers, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger;
James 1:19, 20


He who restrains his words has knowledge, And he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding. Proverbs 17:27

Do not be eager in your heart to be angry, For anger resides in the bosom of fools. Eccl. 7:9

obstacles

When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you do not change your decision to get there.” Zig Ziglar


Life is really an obstacle course; some you go over, some you go around and some you have to go through. The secret to success is that you do not give up!

evil

“Evil does not exist, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God’s love present in his heart. It’s like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light.”

love is active

Our love must not be a thing of words and fine talk. It must be a thing of action and sincerity. 1 John 3:18

Do not waste time bothering whether you “love” your neighbor; act as if you did.As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone you will presently come to love him. — C. S. Lewis

purpose

I still believe that standing up for the truth of God is the greatest thing in the world. This is the end (purpose) of life. The end of life is not to be happy. The end of life is not to achieve pleasure and avoid pain. The end of life is to do the will of God, come what may. –Martin Luther King, Jr.
