A hundred years from now, the likelihood is that no one will remember you. But if you are a child of God, he will remember, not only for a hundred, but for an eternity. So live so that he will know you then. No one else will care.

The day is what you make it. The mind is where it’s made. The goodness of God is what allows the mind to construct the frame that makes the day.

“Jehovah’s standards are high, but they are ever far more reasonable than men’s.”
—G.C. Morgan, Exposition of the Whole Bible, 230 (on Psa 26).

When someone says, “It is what it is,” I always want to reply, “But remember ‘I Am Who I Am.'”

They say the Tempter goes straight for your weak points, and so he does. So does God.

Many people who don’t want to have to answer to God have a simple solution: deny that sin is a problem; blame God for man’s atrocities; proclaim one’s own justice and goodness. In this way, God is not the solution—he, in their minds, becomes the problem to be removed.
What we will do in heaven has to be one of the most nonsensical questions ever asked. It doesn’t matter what we will do. It matters who we will be with. And that question has been answered—the Lord God, creator and sustainer and savior and lover of us all.
