Proverbs

Reminding me to pray for our young people who are going to Zambia next week. Walking in their flip-flops!

Call on God, but row away from the rocks.
Indian Proverb

Reminds me that I have personal responsiblity as well as replying on God. We are the hands of Christ etc....

You've got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was.

Back to previous blog about 'reputation'. Again a reminder, I have personal responsibility for my own spiritual life.

What you don't see with your eyes, don't invent with your mouth.
Jewish Proverb

Reminds me to guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

Hold a true friend with both hands.

not quite a proverb but a reminder to me that people watch me and how I act - when Ghandi was asked by a reporter what his message was - he replied by saying "My life is my message"

Ann said...

The other one of Ghandi's I like is "Be the change you want to see happen".

Liz said...

Oh, was it Ghandi that said that? I love that - but it's SO not easy!

Miss Watson said...

Maybe not, but if there's more than just you, that automatically makes it a little easier....and if it's God's change!

Liz said...
