Bible Reading: Proverbs 4: 5-9

Memory Verse If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. James 3:13 (NLT)

  1. On sin: Suffering is better than sinning. There is more evil in a drop of sin than in an ocean of affliction. Better, burn for Christ, than turn from Christ – Charles Spurgeon.
  2. On the Bible: The Bible is a supernatural book and can be understood only by supernatural aid – A.W. Tozer
  3. On comfort zone: You will destroy your dreams if you stay in your comfort zone – Coach Lisle
  4. On hardship: Hardship often prepares an ordinary person for an extraordinary destiny – C.S. Lewis
  5. On falling in love with Jesus: When you fall in love with Jesus, you fall out of love with the world.
  6. On the Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit’s main ministry is not to give thrills but to create in us Christlike character – J. I. Packer
  7. On depending on God: Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done – C.S. Lewis
  8. On prayer: The more you pray, the less you panic. The more you worship, the less you worry.
  9. On work balance: A core worker died 2 days ago. HR is busy cleaning her office and a talk of posting for her position. Meanwhile a family is grieving the loss of a mother and wife. This is a reminder that you are replaceable at work but invaluable at home. Don’t make work your life.
  10. On fear: You may be afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow
  11. On life challenges: Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are – Bernice Johnson Reagon
  12. On growth: One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again – Abraham Maslow
  13. On criticism: Take criticism seriously, but not personally. If there is truth or merit in the criticism, try to learn from it. Otherwise, let it roll right off you – Hillary Clinton
  14. On giving thanks: So long we are receivers of mercy, we must be givers of thanks – Charles Spurgeon
