Weekend Wisdom: Serve One Another

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.

 Charles Dickens

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.

 
Horace Mann

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.

Mark 10:45

Weekend Wisdom: Live In Peace With One Another

(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

Quotes

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.

Jimi Hendrix

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

Mother Teresa
Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.

The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace.
Carlos Santana
Nobody can bring you peace but yourself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Peace begins with a smile.
Mother Teresa

Quotes About Waiting

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.

A healthy attitude is contagious but don’t wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier.
