Brief Truth - April 17, 2023

I believe in brevity. And since you’ve given me your time, I shouldn’t take more than my share. Over the years I’ve collected some “brief” statements of truth.

Number 1: Pray all the time. If necessary, use words.

Number 2: God forgets the past. Imitate Him.

Number 3: Greed I’ve often regretted. Generosity—never.

Number 4: In buying a gift for your wife, practicality can be more expensive than extravagance.

Here’s another: Don’t ask God to do what you want. Ask God to do what is right.

How about this one: You’ll give up on yourself before God will.

Flattery is fancy dishonesty.

You’ll regret opening your mouth. You’ll rarely regret keeping it shut.

And I’ll close with this one: To see sin without grace is despair. To see grace without sin is arrogance. To see them in tandem is conversion!
