"Look at that sea, girls---all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen.  We couldn't enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds."

Wednesday Wisdom No. 25


“Every time we listen to a sermon, the devil will whisper in our ear: ‘That was good stuff.  Why not do something about it tomorrow?’  And we instinctively want to agree, because tomorrow never comes… ‘Respond to the preaching tomorrow, respond to the preaching yesterday, but never respond today.’  And if we listen to him, we will never respond.” 
~ Christopher Ash, Listen Up! A Practical Guide to Listening to Sermons
