Proverbs 13:10 - Through insolence comes nothing but strife, But wisdom is with those who receive counsel.
Words to Ponder
No man dares to condemn the Christian faith today, because the Christian faith has not been tried. Not until men get rid of the thought that it is a poor machine, an expedient for saving them from suffering and pain; not until they get the grand idea of it as the great power of God present in and through the lives of men; not until then does Christianity enter upon its true trial and become ready to show what it can do. - Phillips Brooks, The Law of Growth
