"What are you really living for? It's crucial to realize that you

either glorify God, or you glorify something or someone else.

You're always making something look big. If you don't glorify

God when you're involved in a conflict, you inevitably show

that someone or something else rules your heart."

- Ken Sande

"Humility is nothing but the disappearance of self in the vision that

God is all."

- Andrew Murray

"[Amy Carmichael's] great longing was to have a "single eye" for

the glory of God. Whatever might blur the vision God had give her

of His work, whatever could distract or deceive or tempt other to

seek anything but the Lord Jesus Himself she tried to eliminate."

- Elisabeth Elliot

"Every blossoming flower warns you that it is time to seek the

Lord; be not out of tune with nature, but let your heart bud and

bloom with holy desires."

- Charles Haddon Spurgeon

"God is the greatest thing that exists, ever has existed or ever will...

for us to glory in anything else, would be sin, as there is nothing

greater than God, there is no calling greater than praising God."

- John Piper

"Our gifts are very pleasant to Him. He loves to see us lay our time,

our talents, our substance on the altar not for the value of what

we give, but for the sake of the motive from which the gift springs."

- Charles Haddon Spurgeon

"We ascribe to God. We don't add to Him."

- John Piper
