Thought Provokers

Those Thought Provokers may help us meditating on the Gospel of this Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014: Matthew 5:21-37
If only there were evil people somewhere,
insidiously committing evil deeds,
and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us
and destroy them.
But the line dividing good and evil
cuts through the heart of every human being.
And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?
Alexandr Solzhenitsyn

As the excellence of steel is strength,
and the excellence of art is beauty,
so the excellence of mankind is moral character.
A. W. Tozer

Holiness does not merely consist in not committing certain sins.
It means using your life in the way God wants,
exercising constant restraint.
Francis Devas

A holy Christian life is made up of a number of small things:
Little words, not eloquent sermons;
Little deeds, not miracles of battle,
Or one great, heroic deed of martyrdom;
The little constant sunbeam,
not the lightning.
The avoidance of little evils,
Little inconsistencies, little weaknesses,
Little follies and indiscretions,
And little indulgences of the flesh made up
The beauty of a holy life.
Andrew Bonar

The serene beauty of a holy life
is the most powerful influence in the world
next to the power of God.
Blaise Pascal
