Attitude – Daily TAGline

Thought:

I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen one percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say I’m bored.

Challenge:

God did not create this beautiful world so you could be bored. If you’re bored, go look in the mirror and blame that person. Then go do something about it – finding someone to help may be a good place to start. Start today!

Reference:

Slothfulness casts into a deep sleep, and an idle person will suffer hunger.

Fellowship – Daily TAGline

Thought:

How can we live in harmony? First we need to know we are all deeply in love with the same God.

Challenge:

When you look at those around you, start with the basic understanding that all Christians love and follow the same Lord.

That’s how we live in harmony.

Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
