Came across this first one at Darryl Dash’s blog

“The shortest way to peace will be found in casting ourselves upon God for our daily pardon of deficiencies and supplies of grace, without looking too eagerly for present fruit. Hence our course of effort is unvarying but more tranquil”. It is peace – – not slumber – -rest in the work – – not from it.

Charles Bridges (1794-1869), from Christian Ministry with an Inquiry into the Causes of Its Inefficiency

Heard this one this morning at our church’s annual Missions Breakfast.

“The reason we are in the circumstances we are in is to make much of Him, glorify Him, show off His greatness, and invite others to do the same”.
