  • The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing. Peter Lord


  • Compassion is difficult to give away because it keeps coming back.

        - Money can buy a house but not a home.
        - Money can buy a companion but not a friend.
        - Money can buy medicine but not health.
        - Money can buy entertainment but not happiness.
        - Money can buy a bed but not a good night sleep.

  • Don't wait for six strong men to take you to church.
  • Where would the church be if every member prayed, gave, participated as much as I do?

Our walk with God

  • Never give the devil a ride -- he will always want to drive.
  • Give Satan an inch & he'll be a ruler.
  • Man's way leads to a hopeless end -- God's way leads to an endless hope.
  • Plan ahead -- It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark.
  • When you get to the point where God is all you've got, you will discover that he is all you need. Jack Hollingsworth, Acts 29 ministries.
  • In the sentence of life, the devil may be a comma--but never let him be the period.
  • When God ordains, He sustains.
  • Most people want to serve God, but only in an advisory position.
  • Be ye fishers of men -- you catch them & He'll clean them.
