Live so that when the final summons comes you will leave something more behind you than an epitaph on a tombstone or an obituary in a newspaper.

The Lord is not compelled to use theologians. He can take snakes, sticks or anything else, and use them for the advancement of his cause.

I believe that a long step toward public morality will have been taken when sins are called by their right names.

Your reputation is what people say about you. Your character is what God and your wife know about you.

If you took no more care of yourself physically than spiritually, you’d be just as dried up physically as you are spiritually.

If you live wrong you can’t die right.

Look into the preaching Jesus did and you will find it was aimed straight at the big sinners on the front seats.

If good preaching could save the world, it would have been done long ago.

Churches don’t need new members half so much as they need the old bunch made over.

There wouldn’t be so many non-church goers if there were not so many non-going churches.

Too many churches are little more than four walls and a roof.

There are some so-called Christian homes today with books on the shelves of the library that have no more business there than a rattler crawling about on the floor, or a poison within the child’s reach.

Home is the place we love best and grumble the most.

There is more power in a mother’s hand than in a king’s scepter.

I don’t believe there are devils enough in hell to pull a boy out of the arms of a godly mother.

There is nothing in the world of art like the songs mother used to sing.

To train a boy in the way he should go you must go that way yourself.

Don’t stop with telling your boy to do right. Show him how.

Be careful, father, or while you are taking one lap around the devil’s track your boy will make six.

If you would have your children turn out well, don’t turn your home into a lunch counter and lodging house.

Not to walk in the straight and narrow way yourself, is to give the devil the biggest kind of a chance to get our children.

Some homes need a hickory switch a good deal more than they do a piano.

Better die an old maid, sister, than marry the wrong man.

Whiskey is all right in its place — but its place is hell.

The normal way to get rid of drunkards is to quit raising drunkards — to put the business that makes drunkards out of business.

Riches have never yet given anybody either peace or rest.

It won’t save your soul if your wife is a Christian. You have got to be something more than a brother-in-law to the Church.

You can’t raise the standard of women’s morals by raising their pay envelope. It lies deeper than that.

The reason you don’t like the Bible, you old sinner, is because it knows all about you.

Going to church doesn’t make a man a Christian, any more than going to a garage makes him an automobile.

The difference between God’s side and the devil’s is the difference between heaven and hell.

God keeps no half-way house. It’s either heaven or hell for you and me.

A man can slip into hell with his hand on the door-knob of heaven.

The Bible will always be full of things you cannot understand, as long as you will not live according to those you can understand.

The inconsistency is not in the Bible, but in your life.

God likes a little humor, as is evidence by the fact that he made the monkeys, the parrot — and some of you people.

Yank some of the groans out of your prayers, and shove in some shouts.

If you are strangers to prayer you are strangers to power.

What have you given the world it never possessed before you came?

The Bible says forgive your debtors; the world says “sue them for their dough.”

Temptation is the devil looking through the keyhole. Yielding is opening the door and inviting him in.

I am not the author of the plan of salvation, but I am responsible for the way I preach it.

I am an old-fashioned preacher of the old-time religion, that has warmed this cold world’s heart for two thousand years.

When I hit the devil square in the face some people go away as mad as if I had slapped them in the mouth.

The backslider likes the preaching that wouldn’t hit the side of a house, while the real disciple is delighted when the truth brings him to his knees.

To discover a flaw in our makeup is a chance to get rid of it, and add a new line of beauty to our life.

It is not necessary to be in a big place to do big things.

Read and read again, and do not

despair of help to understand

the will and mind of God though

you think they are fast locked up

from you. Neither trouble your

heads though you have not

commentaries and exposition.

Pray and read, read and pray;

for a little from God is better

than a great deal from men.

Bunyan, John

I spent many years of my life wandering from God. If I

have learned but one lesson, it is that I would sooner face

danger in partnership with Him than a life of ease apart

from Him.

Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

~Theodore Roosevelt 1907~

Some church members are like wheelbarrows — not good unless pushed.

Some are like canoes — need to be paddled.

Some are like kites — if a string isn’t kept on them, they fly away.

Some are like kittens — more contented when petted.

Some are like balloons — full of wind and ready to blow up.

Some are like footballs — you can’t tell which way they’ll bounce next.

Some are like trailers — they have to be pulled.

Some are like neon lights — they keep going on and off.

Many, thank goodness, are like the North Star — there when you need them, dependable and ever loyal.

The woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam;

not made out of his head to rule over him,

nor out of his feet to be trampled on by him;

but out of his side to be equal to him,

under his arm to be protected,

and near his heart to be loved.

~Matthew Henry
