New Post: "An Abbreviated Saturday of Quotes"

Today’s post is short, but filled with quotes that have meaning.
Let them speak to your other self...
the one not consumed with ego.

“If you’re rich, but not generous,

you’re actually poor.” -McRae Acuff

If your money becomes your sense of self worth, you’re poor.

If your money becomes your identity, you’re poor.

Is it possible that we dream too small? Have our goals become less than impressive? When did we become tired Christians, operating from a place of less faith and power than the world? -Pastor Steven Furtick
