"Our heavenly Father never takes anything from His children unless He means to give them something better." George Mueller
"Soul winners are not soul winners because of what they know, but because of Whom they know, how well they know him, and how much they long for others to know him." Dawson Trotman (founder of 'The Navigators')
"A young teen who was constantly getting into trouble always apologized when his parents confronted him. No matter how much he hurt them with his previous wrongdoing, he would turn around and do something else wrong -- knowing he would be forgiven. Finally, his dad took him out to the garage for a talk. Dad picked up a hammer and pounded a nail into the garage wall. Then he gave his son the hammer and told him to pull out the nail. The boy shrugged, grabbed the hammer, and yanked out the nail. 'That's like forgiveness, son. When you do something wrong, it's like pounding in a nail. Forgiveness is when you pull the nail out.' 'Okay, I get it,' said the boy.
