Thought Provokers for Sunday, August 2, 2015
The Gospel reading is John 6:24-35 “I am the bread of life”.
For the Christian,
the bottom line can never be the bottom line.

Richard Foster

We are rich in the things that perish, but poor in the things of the spirit.
We are rich in gadgets, but poor in faith.
We are rich in goods, but poor in grace.
We are rich in know-how, but poor in character.
We are rich in words, but poor in deeds.

Billy Graham

Abundance is not measured by what flows in,
but by what flows over.
The smaller we make the vessel of our need,
the sooner we get the overflow we need for delight.

Brother David Steindl-Rast

The average North American is typed as the installment buyer
who is busy buying things he doesn’t want,
with money he doesn’t have,
to impress people he doesn’t like.

O. Donald Olsen

We have too many men of science,
too few men of God.
We have grasped the mystery of the atom,
and rejected the Sermon on the Mount.
The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom,
power without conscience.

General Omar Bradley
