Wahoo! We made it through 10 weekends of quotes inspired by chapter headings from “Love one another, 20 practical lessons” by Don McMinn. I hope you have enjoyed the journey along with me. However I am anxious to dive into something new for “Weekend Wisdom.”
The final Bible verse is Hebrews 10:20
Spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
Applause is the spur of noble minds, the end and aim of weak ones.
Each one of us requires the spur of insecurity to force us to do our best.
Harold W. Dodds
I had trouble inserting more quotes, so I will end this series with these two.
This is the last weekend that topics for quotes will come from “Love one another, 20 practical lessons” by Don McMinn.
The Bible verse for today is from Ephesians 4:32
Be kind…to one another
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.
Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God – the rest will be given.
A part of kindness consists in loving people more than they deserve.
A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.
William Arthur Ward
This is the next to the last weekend for wisdom from Don McMinn’s book “Love one another, 20 practical lessons.” We are on chapter 18 and the Bible verse comes from Galatians 5:13
Serve one another in love.
Quotes About Serving
No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Doing nothing for others is the undoing of ourselves.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Today’s Bible verse is Romans 12:10
Be devoted to one another
Quotes About Devotion
Faith is the first factor in a life devoted to service. Without it, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.
Mary McLeod Bethune
I can think of nothing less pleasurable than a life devoted to pleasure.
Champions are not the ones who always win races – champions are the ones who get out there and try. And try harder the next time. And even harder the next time. ‘Champion’ is a state of mind. They are devoted. They compete to best themselves as much if not more than they compete to best others. Champions are not just athletes.
We are now up to chapter 16 in Don McMinn’s book “Love one another, 20 practical lessons.” The Bible verse for today is from James 5:16
Confess your sins to each other
I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.
Confess your sins to the Lord and you will be forgiven; confess them to man and you will be laughed at.
You know, God will give favor to anyone who will believe Him. Every day you should confess that you have favor everywhere you go. God will begin to open doors that you wouldn’t believe.
Sadly, we do a much better job of making people feel guilty than we do of delivering them from the guilt we create. We need to confess this and change our ways.

The Bible verse for today is 1 Corinthians 12:25
Have the same care one for another
Quotes About Caring
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.
Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring.
(Author’s Note: Yes, some of you are seeing this for the second time. It mistakenly got published yesterday along with “Offer Hospitality To One Another.” Sorry about that. Hope your Sunday is filled with sun.)
The Bible verse for today is:
Live in peace with each other
1 Thessalonians 5:13
Today’s quotes come from 2 singers, a nun and an American essayist, lecturer, and poet. Enjoy and know that if we all lived by the last quote, we would indeed live in peace with each other.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace.
Nobody can bring you peace but yourself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Peace begins with a smile.
