Robert Stikmanz Quotes

"If we fail, the planet will grow sterile and your people will die in hunger, thirst and waves of plagues. Our people and the thrms will die more slowly because the poisons here will render us unable to conceive. The skies will cease to be blue, the land will lose its verdure and the seas, well, the seas will be the first to go. Anything that does survive will be broken, mutant, discontinuous from us and mutually exclusive. It will be the new life of a shattered world, a world for chitinous, crawly things, not one for soft and tender emotion. I hope, child, I have answered your question."Meg said nothing. None of it made sense, but she still felt an urge to deny it, deny it, even though Ekaterinas strange, rolling words carried a ring of truth. Suddenly, the autumn chill cut through all her layers of bundling wraps. She could not stop shivering."

Quotes About Philanthropic Giving

"God never estimates what we give from impulse. We are given credit for what we determine in our hearts to give; for the giving that is governed by a fixed determination. The Spirit of God revolutionises our philanthropic instincts. Much of our philanthropy is simply the impulse to save ourselves an uncomfortable feeling. The Spirit of God alters all that. As saints our attitude towards giving is that we give for Jesus Christs sake, and from no other motive." - Author: Oswald Chambers

Quotes About Laugh

"Jillian," I whispered, "I know you dont know who I am. But I love your brother, and I know you do too. So . . . do you think you could wake up? Do you think you could at least try?" For far too long she gave me no response. Id just about given up—hung my head and prepared myself for the inevitable, impossible job of comforting Joshua—when Jillian whispered back. "I guess. Since you asked so nicely." In spite of everything, a quiet laugh escaped my lips. "Thank God. Because I have a feeling youd be a huge pain in the ass if you died." - Author: Tara Hudson

Quotes About Djesus

"The High Cost of ServanthoodJesus warned, however, that this life of servanthood is not lived without cost. He said, "The servant is not greater than his Lord" (John 13:16) and, if the persecuted and hated Him, we can expect no better treatment. In 2 Timothy 3:12 Paul wrote, " All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persectution," so this is also the cost we as servants must be willing to pay. This is so difficult for us to accept in our world of man-pleasing, "Im OK, youre OK" Christianity. No one wants to be disliked, hated or misunderstood---especially by family, friends and loved ones. But this of often exactly the price to be paid by anyone seriously wanting to follow Jesus into a life of servanthood." - Author: K.P. Yohannan
