But the one who peers into the perfect law of liberty and fixes his attention there, and does not become a forgetful listener but one who lives it out – he will be blessed in what he does. — Jas 1:25 NET
We live in deeds, not years: in thoughts, not breaths:
In feelings, not in figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
— Philip James Bailey.
Men cease to interest us when we find their limitations. The only sin is limitation. As soon as you once come up with a man’s limitations it is all over with him.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Lord God, help me to break away from habits that fasten me in the ruts of life. Draw me out to thy broad way, where there are no limits to thy wonderful works, that I may expand my life. Amen.
