SEEDS


"I planted the seed... but God made it grow." -- I Cor. 3:6


THOTS ON RESPONSIBILITY

"Highly proactive people recognize... responsibility. They do not blame circumstances, conditions, or conditioning for their behavior. Their behavior is a product of their own conscious choice based on values, rather than a product of their conditions, based on feelings." Stephen Covey

"When I finally left the formal education process behind , there was no one to push or pull me, no one to require excellence except myself. And soon I learned that I would have to accept full responsibility for my own mental growth."
Gordon MacDonald

"Assuming the personal responsibility to make the best use of our talents and time will result in an enormous gain in happiness, success, and wealth. This is true of everyone. However, scarcely one person in a thousand puts his or her time to anywhere near its potential good use."
Denis Waitley

"The right religious use of everything and every talent is the indispensable duty of every being that is capable of knowing right and wrong." William Law

"You are to be responsible for the care of the sanctuary and the altar, so that wrath will not fall on the Israelites again...."
God's charge to the Priests and Levites, Number 18:5

"If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem." attributed to Eldridge Cleaver

"Carrying his own cross, he went out to The Place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha)." John 19:17

"Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervigly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful." Hebrews 10:19-23
