Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others
cannot keep it from themselves.

Someone once asked Dr. Karl Menninger what to do if they felt a nervous breakdown coming on. The famous psychiatrist offered this prescription:

“Lock up your house,
go across the railroad tracks,
find someone in need,
and do something for him.”

Jesus says:

“Whoever will lose his life for my sake
will find it” (v. 25).

No Cross, No Crown.

What a sight it would be–
Christians bearing their cross,
instead of simply singing about it!

Edwin Lewis

There is no such thing as living without a cross.
We are free only to choose between crosses….
In seeking to live without the cross, we got a cross–
not one of Christ’s making or our own, but the devil’s.

Fulton J. Sheen
