IN A PIT WITH A LION...(PART 2)





Here are some more great quotes taken from Mark Batterson's In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day.

  • Hell begins the day God grants you the vision to see all that you could have done, should have done, and would have done, but did not do. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
  • We need to stop cursing the darkness and start lighting some candles (old aphorism)
  • One courageous choice may be the only thing between you and your dream becoming reality.
  • Think of every opportunity as a gift from God. What you do with that opportunity is your gift to God.
  • One of our greatest spiritual shortcomings is low expectations. We don't expect much from God because we aren't asking for much.
  • I honestly wonder if we've totally missed what it means to follow in the footsteps of Christ. I'm afraid our version of Christlikeness is way too civilized and sanitized.
  • Part of spiritual maturity is caring less and less about what people think about you and more and more about what God thinks about you.
  • Christ followers ought to be the most passionate people on the planet. To be like Jesus is to be consumed with passion.
  • As long as I pursue God's calling on my life, then God is ultimately responsible for getting me where He wants me to go.
