Thought Provokers for Sunday, Nov. 20, 2016


If a person says with Pascal, “Lord, I give You everything,”
and in a tone that really commits him,
his friends can expect or fear anything from him
save that he will turn his life into a farce.

Francois Mauriac, God and Mammon

If I could give you information of my life,
it would be to show how a woman of very ordinary ability
has been led by God in strange and unaccustomed paths
to do in His service what He has done in her.
And if I could tell you all, you would see how God has done all,
and I nothing.
I have worked hard, very hard — that is all,
and I have never refused God anything.

Florence Nightingale,
founder of the Red Cross and the nursing profession

and to attain a spirit of childlike simplicity and dependence.

Really to pray
is to stand to attention in the presence of the King
and to be prepared to take orders from Him.

Donald Coggan

I go out to preach with two propositions in mind.
First, every person ought to give his life to Christ.
Second, whether or not anyone else gives him his life,
I will give him mine.

Jonathan Edwards
