Quote - Humility

"Our humility toward others is the only sufficient proof that our humility before God is real."

~ Andrew Murray

We are called to be humble before God and we may try our very best to honor that, but often we are confronted with people who have vastly different ideas than us.  This seems to bring out the worst in so many people, politics comes to mind.  It is hard to believe the way that people treat others who have a different political view than they do.  This is nothing new, it just seems like it's the worst in history.  I am thinking that there are worse times that divide people although with our 24/7 news it seems to be prevalent everywhere right now.

Sometimes it is better to listen without defending your position.

Quote - Perspective

"Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start."

~ Nido Qubein

This is definitely the way we should look at our circumstances.  Sometimes it is hard to see the path we should be on because we have no idea what is coming down the road.  Our perspective is everything in determining if we are positive or negative about where we are at this moment which will determine what we will do to get to the life we want.
