Every happening, great and small, is a parable whereby God speaks to us, and the art of life is to get the message.

And Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?”

Philip said to him, “Come and see.”

Those who tell the Truth love you. Those who tell you what you want to hear love themselves.

Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths.
It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it.
Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult.
Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.

~M. Scott Peck

There he is. In the temple again. Causing trouble.

Speaking very different from other preachers.
Speaking with authority about sorrow, anxiety, sickness,and death.

Penetrating the dark corners of human existence.

Shattering illusion.

Make no mistake about it; this is a dangerous man

Religious Fashion Shows

Now Jesus turned to address his disciples, along with the crowd that had gathered with them. "The religion scholars and Pharisees are competent teachers in God's Law. You won't go wrong in following their teachings on Moses. But be careful about following them. They talk a good line, but they don't live it. They don't take it into their hearts and live it out in their behavior. It's all spit-and-polish veneer.

"Instead of giving you God's Law as food and drink by which you can banquet on God, they package it in bundles of rules, loading you down like pack animals. They seem to take pleasure in watching you stagger under these loads, and wouldn't think of lifting a finger to help. Their lives are perpetual fashion shows, embroidered prayer shawls one day and flowery prayers the next. They love to sit at the head table at church dinners, basking in the most prominent positions, preening in the radiance of public flattery, receiving honorary degrees, and getting called 'Doctor' and 'Reverend.'

"Don't let people do that to you, put you on a pedestal like that. You all have a single Teacher, and you are all classmates. Don't set people up as experts over your life, letting them tell you what to do. Save that authority for God; let him tell you what to do. No one else should carry the title of 'Father'; you have only one Father, and he's in heaven. And don't let people maneuver you into taking charge of them. There is only one Life-Leader for you and them—Christ.

"Do you want to stand out? Then step down. Be a servant. If you puff yourself up, you'll get the wind knocked out of you. But if you're content to simply be yourself, your life will count for plenty.


~Matthew 23:1-12 (The Message)

Hey, King! Where’s your crown, where’s your Cadillac?
I’ve never seen a king before – on a donkey’s back.

~Paul Grant & Marian Palmer



The next day the huge crowd that had arrived for the Feast heard that Jesus was entering Jerusalem. They broke off palm branches and went out to meet him. And they cheered:

Hosanna!

Blessed is he who comes in God's name!

Yes! The King of Israel!
Jesus got a young donkey and rode it, just as the Scripture has it:

No fear, Daughter Zion:
See how your king comes,
riding a donkey's colt.

The disciples didn't notice the fulfillment of many Scriptures at the time, but after Jesus was glorified, they remembered that what was written about him matched what was done to him.

The crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb, raising him from the dead, was there giving eyewitness accounts. It was because they had spread the word of this latest God-sign that the crowd swelled to a welcoming parade. The Pharisees took one look and threw up their hands: "It's out of control. The world's in a stampede after him."

~John 12 (The Message)

He was a plain man
and learned no Latin

Having left all gold behind
he dealt out peace
to all us wild men
and the weather

He ate fish, bread
country wine

and God's will

Dust sandalled his feet

He wore purple only once
and that was an irony


~Luci Shaw

They drove me up the hill, Thomas
I am the man

They made me carry the cross, Thomas
I am the man

I am the man, Thomas
I am the man

Look at these nail scars
Here in my hand

They crowned my head with thorns, Thomas
I am the man

They nailed me to the cross, Thomas
I am the man

I am the man, Thomas
I am the man
Look at these nail scars
Here in my hand

They pierced me in the side, Thomas
I am the man

I died on the cross,
Thomas
I am the man

I am the man, Thomas
I am the man
Look at these nails scars
Here in my hand

They buried me in the tomb, Thomas
I am the man

In three days I rose, Thomas
I am the man

I am the man, Thomas
I am the man
Look at these nails scars
Here in my hand


~Ralph Stanley and Larry Sparks

Life isn't about having, it's about being. You could surround yourself with all that money can buy, and you'd still be as miserable as a human can be. I know people with perfect bodies who don't have half the happiness I've found. On my journeys I've seen more joy in the slums of Mumbai and the orphanages of Africa than in wealthy gated communities and on sprawling estates worth millions. Why is that? You'll find contentment when your talents and passion are completely engaged, in full force. Recognise instant self-gratification for what it is. Resist the temptation to grab for material objects like the perfect house, the coolest clothes or the hottest car. The if I just had X, I would be happy syndrome is a mass delusion. When you look for happiness in mere objects, they are never enough. Look around. Look within.

~Nick Vujicic

September 25,1875
Paris

Dear Theo,

The path is narrow, therefore we must be careful. You know how others have arrived where we want to go, let us take that simple road too.

Ora et Labora, [Pray and work] let us do our daily work, whatever the hand finds to do, with all our strength and let us believe that God will give good gifts, a part that will not be taken away, to those who ask Him for it.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new!” [2 Cor. v.17.]

How I am longing for Christmas, but let us have patience, it will come soon enough.

Courage, lad; my compliments to all the friends, and believe me,

Your loving brother,

Vincent


~From Letters to Theo, Vincent van Gogh

Christianity is realistic because it says that if there is no truth, there is also no hope;
and there can be no truth if there is no adequate base. It is prepared to face the consequences
of being proved false and say with Paul: If you find the body of Christ, the discussion is finished,
let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die. It leaves absolutely no room for a romantic answer.

~Francis Schaeffer

Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heav’n and home,
When Jesus is my portion? My constant Friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.


~Civilla Martin and Charles Gabriel

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life.
I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it.
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly.

~Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)

To all the people doing lines
Don't do it, don't do it
Inject your soul with liberty
It's free, it's free
To all the kids with heroin eyes
Don't do it, don't do it
Cos it's not, not what it seems
Oh no it's not, not what it seems

Salvation, Salvation, Salvation is free
Salvation, Salvation, Salvation is free

~The Cranberries
