Tips for Better Living

A word from God's Word: "A wise man will hear and will increase learning; and a man of understanding will listen to wise counsel."1

Benjamin Franklin said: "Well done is better than well said."

Thomas Jefferson; "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it. In other words, the harder I work, the luckier I get!"

Eleanor Roosevelt: "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."

Albert Einstein: "In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity."

Anonymous: "Leaders are like eagles; they don't flock Ö you find them one at a time."

Anonymous: "A religion that does nothing, gives nothing, costs nothing, suffers nothing, is worth nothing."

Jacob Riis: "When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did itóbut all that had gone before."

As God's Word, the Bible, says, "A wise man will hear and will increase learning; and a man of understanding will listen to wise counsel."1

And such are the ways of God in helping to "shape" us into the person he sees we can become.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please give me a wise, understanding, and listening heart to learn your ways of grace, truth, wisdom, and love. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."

1. Proverbs 1:5 (NKJV).
