justice

I have received no assurance that anything we can do will eradicate suffering. I think the best results are obtained by people who work quietly away at limited objectives, such as the abolition of the slave trade, or prison reform, or factory acts, or tuberculosis, not by those who think they can achieve universal justice, or health, or peace. I think the art of life consists in tackling each immediate evil as well as we can.” C.S.Lewis

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

others

When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves. William Arthur Ward

No one should seek their own good, but the good of others. I Corinthians 10:24

He arose

Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!     
Robert Lowry

He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: Luke 24:6

serve

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”  Ralph Waldo Emerson

 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh ; rather, serve one another humbly in love. Galatians 5:13

renewed

I often think that people we have loved
and who have loved us…
become a part of us and
we carry them around all the time –
whether we see them or not. And in some ways we are a sum total
of those who have loved us and
those who have given themselves to us.

 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.    II Corinthians 4:16

possible

Any home can be restored, rebuilt. It is never too late. Charles Swindoll

With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible. Matthew 10:27

alone

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be. Anne Frank

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. Mark 1:35
