Twitter Gleanings

Some more gleanings from my Twitter feed:
"The beatitudes aren't prescribing how to achieve a better life; they're describing what happens to those that God kills & makes alive." - Tullian Tchvidjian @PastorTullian

There are two paths in life: The path of discipline and the path of regret. One or the other - Your choice. And mine.

 We long for more & God's promise is that there is more awaiting us. More to delight us than we will ever exhaust. @CSLewisU

“All who live with any degree of serenity live by some assurance of grace.” – Reinhold Niebuhr RT

 "The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it"- Chinese Proverb. RT

 "Religious people obey God to get things; gospel people obey God to get God." - Tim Keller RT

 "Just the knowledge that a good book is waiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier." --Kathleen Norris

Modern "statements of faith" lack the depth of thought & eloquence of language found in the great historic creeds of the church.  

We should be as generous & lavish in forgiving others as we want God to be generous & lavish in forgiving us.
