Words of Encouragement & Inspiration

*Note: A lot of inspiration as well as encouragement can be gleaned from those great men of God who went on before us. Here is one such gem.

“Take heed to yourself.” – Exodus 10:28.

Art thou a traveler, like him who prayed, “Guide my footsteps”? Take heed to thyself lest thou wander from the way, lest thou turn to the right or left. Walk on the King’s highway. Art thou an architect? Lay firmly the foundation of faith, which is Jesus Christ. Art thou a builder? Look how thou buildest and what,—not wood, grass, stubble; but gold, silver, and precious stones. A pastor? Take heed lest any of the duties belonging to thine office are omitted. A husbandman? Dig round the barren fig-tree, and supply it with what is needed to produce fruitfulness. Art thou a soldier? Endure hardship for the Gospel, engage in the good warfare against the spirits of darkness, against the affections of the flesh. Entangle not thyself with the affairs of this life, that thou mayest please Him who has called thee to be a soldier. Art thou an athlete? Take heed to thyself lest thou transgress any of the laws of the contest, for no one is crowned unless he strive lawfully.
~ BASIL THE GREAT

    The Hare and the Turtle

    In the race of life only one receives the prize.
    Run the race as if you would win the prize !
    As sojourners here on earth, we are in it for the long haul,
    Steady goes it, stay firm, your narrow path has pitfalls
    Each step taken will give you encouragement to finish the race !
    And to the victors, eternal life will be sought and final rest for the weary !
