Thought for the Day 4/16/2014

He came not to a throne,
   but to a manger.
He lived not as a king,
   but as a servant.
He chose not an earthly kingdom,
   but a cross.
He gave not just a little,
   but everything.
 -Holley Gerth

Christ loved us and 
   gave Himself up for us.
-Ephesians 5:2

Most Christians are being crucified on a cross
    between two thieves: Yesterday's regret
      and tomorrow's worries.

Humble yourselves, therefore,
  under the mighty hand of God,
   so that at the proper time He may exalt you,      
casting all your anxieties on Him,
   because He cares for you.

Give me a fruitful error any time, full of seeds,
     bursting with its own corrections. 
-Vilfredo Pareto
Besides all this, we have had earthly fathers 
  who disciplined us and we respected them. 
     Shall we not much more be subject 
            to the Father and live? 
For they disciplined us for a short time 
    as it seemed best to them, 
           but He disciplines us for our good, 
                that we may share His holiness.   
_Mark 10:27 (ESV)

Jesus looked at them and said, "With man

The day you stop learning 
              is the day you begin decaying.
-Isaac Asimov
For the living know that they will die, but the dead 
           know nothing, and they have no more reward, so 
                   whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might. 
-Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10 (ESV)
