Flag of the Week
Today I'd like to share a few quotes with you by Peter Marshall. I'm not sure how he'd do in the world today with all of our "political correctness." But many of the books and sermons he wrote were amazing.
"May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right."
"Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything."
“A different world cannot be built by indifferent people.”
This next one made me laugh at first, and I briefly thought about the TV character Sheldon Cooper. But deep down, there's power in these words.
“Lord, where we are wrong, make us willing to change; where we are right, make us easy to live with.” I hope I'm always willing to change and grow for God's glory, and I hope I'm easy to live with whether I'm right or wrong.
Have a blessed week!
