A DAILY DOSE      TUESDAY, JUNE 23, 2015


To put an engine in position, to heat the boiler, to set it in motion, but not to attach the connecting belt is what has been done with the teaching of Christ. People teach Christianity but don't practice it.

Leo Tolstoy

And coming to her, he said, “Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you.”

1 Kings 19:11-12And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD." And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind and earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire, a still small voice.

A DAILY DOSE      MONDAY, JUNE 8, 2015


Love consumes us only in the measure of our self-surrender.

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is God from of old, creator of the ends of the earth.

He does not faint or grow weary, and his knowledge is beyond scrutiny.

Between saying and doing many pairs of shoes are worn out.

Italian Proverb

 

Philippians 4:8-9

Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.

A DAILY DOSE      THURSDAY, JUNE 4, 2015


You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving. 

St. Francis de Sales

 

1 John 3:18

Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.

A DAILY DOSE      WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 2015


The proof of love is in the works. Where love exists, it works great things. But when it ceases to act, it ceases to exist.

St. Gregory the Great

 

1 Corinthians 13:7, 11, 13

It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things.

So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

A DAILY DOSE      TUESDAY, JUNE 2, 2015

For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he is deluding himself.
