Weekend Wisdom: Ralph Makes You Think How You See The World

Good Morning,

Today’s wisdom comes from my good buddy Ralph Waldo Emerson.  I stumbled upon this one yesterday and decided to share it. It is quite meaty and will make you think or re-think how you see the world and yourself.

“People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.”

So what is your opinion of the world?

Does it align with your character?

What will you do to change your character?

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.
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.
Carlos Santana
Nobody can bring you peace but yourself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Peace begins with a smile.
Mother Teresa
