Isn’t it funny how time and knowledge can change so much so quickly.
I woke up in the couch this past Sunday morning at around 3am, hearing this guy talking on tv and I jumped outta my sleep to write down something he said:
Knowledge is the seed for change. If you change what you know, you’ll change what you do.
It’s as though God destined me to sleep on the couch and wake up just at the point I did, so I could hear that. There’s so much happening right now in my crazy little world. So much that will happen in 2012, God’s willing. But the change that’s coming, is a result of the things I’m learning. Isn’t it funny that the more we learn, its the more we look back and smack ourselves for the mistakes of our past… knowing that if we knew better, we’d have done better.
Knowledge really does change what you do. Which means that we need to learn as much as we can. In this age, that’s almost a problem in the sense that we live in a technology overload era, where we’re getting fed all this information, from facebook and youtube and linkedin and the offline media outlets (tv, radio, papers, magazines, etc).
Make every effort to feed your brain good knowledge. Remember GIGO – garbage in garbage out – if we don’t get good knowledge coming in, then things won’t change much for the good. We’ve got to begin to get meaningful content coming into our brains, to help us grow.
G – GOD | O – OUR | S – SINS | P – PAYING | E — EVERYONE | L – LIFE
God created us to be with Him. (Genesis 1-2) Our sins separate us from God. (Genesis 3) Sins cannot be removed by good deeds. (Genesis 4 – Malachi 4) Paying the price for sin, Jesus died and rose again. (Matthew – Luke) Everyone who trusts in Him alone has eternal life. (John) Life with Jesus starts now and lasts forever. (Acts – Revelation)
Humility is the only true wisdom by which we prepare our minds for all the possible changes of life. George Arliss
What makes humility so desirable is the marvelous thing it does to us; it creates in us a capacity for the closest possible intimacy with God. Monica Baldwin
It is no great thing to be humble when you are brought low; but to be humble when you are praised is a great and rare attainment. St. Bernard
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Philippians 2:3
Without humility there can be no humanity. John Buchan
The greatest friend of truth is Time, her greatest enemy is Prejudice, and her constant companion is humility. Charles Caleb Colton
No truly great person ever thought themselves so. William Hazlitt
Always remember when you are on top of the world , that the earth rotates every 24 hrs. Steve Makris
Humility leads to strength and not to weakness. It is the highest form of self-respect to admit mistakes and to make amends for them. John Mccloy
The first test of a truly great man is his humility. By humility I don’t mean doubt of his powers or hesitation in speaking his opinion, but merely an understanding of the relationship of what he can say and what he can do. John Ruskin
When we become aware of our humility, we’ve lost it.
