The Week in Words
Welcome to The Week In Words, where we share quotes from the last week’s reading. If something you read this past week inspired you, caused you to laugh, cry, think, dream, or just resonated with you in some way, please share it with us, attributing it to its source, which can be a book, newspaper, blog, Facebook — anything that you read.
My quotes this week come from my cough-drop wrappers! LOL For several weeks, I've had trouble with a dry, tickly throat, so I keep Hall's Vitamin C drops in my purse. The other day I noticed that each wrapper has some short motivational thoughts on it, both in French and English. I'm assuming the French ones are the same as the English ones! ;) Most of these thoughts are pump-you-up type motivational fluff that has no basis in Scripture, but yesterday I looked through the pile of wrappers in my purse (ahem) and found several that were worth remembering:
"Don't waste a precious minute!"
"Don't try harder; do harder."
Those three quotes sum up what I've been learning lately: to never waste time; to not just try, but to do; and to keep going forward. God is all about going forward (Philippians 3:13,14)! I hope you'll have a good week using your time wisely, working hard, and moving forward!
