31.
BY PERSEVERANCE THE SNAIL REACHED THE ARK.





Hebrews 12:1 (NIV) says “Therefore, since we are
surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off
everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let
us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”




32.
THE WORST MOMENT FOR THE ATHEIST IS WHEN HE IS


REALLY
THANKFUL AND HAS NOBODY TO THANK.





Psalm
53:1-3 (NIV)
says
The
fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, and
their ways are vile; there is no one who does good.”




33.
IT IS POSSIBLE TO BE TOO BIG FOR GOD TO USE YOU


BUT
NEVER TOO SMALL FOR GOD TO USE YOU.





Proverbs
29:23 (NIV)
says Pride
brings a person low, but the lowly in spirit gain honor.”




34.
KINDNESS GIVES BIRTH TO KINDNESS.





Proverbs
11:17 (NIV)
says Those
who are kind benefit themselves, but the cruel bring ruin on
themselves.”




35.
SOME MINDS ARE LIKE CONCRETE –


THOROUGHLY
MIXED AND PERMANENTLY SET.





Proverbs
13:10 (NIV)
says Where
there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who
take advice.”




36.
THE FIRST RULE OF HOLES:


WHEN
YOU’RE IN ONE, STOP DIGGING.




Psalm
40:2-3 (NIV)
says He
lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my
feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song
in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the
Lord and put their trust in him.”




37.
A DAY HEMMED IN PRAYER IS LESS LIKELY TO UNRAVEL.




Philippians
4:6-7 (NIV)
says Do
not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and
petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the
peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your
hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”




38.
HE WHO PROVIDES FOR THIS LIFE, BUT TAKES NO CARE


FOR
ETERNITY, IS WISE FOR A MOMENT BUT A FOOL FOREVER.





Matthew
16:23 (NIV)
says
“‘Jesus
turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind me, Satan! You are a
stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God,
but merely human concerns.’”




39.
AT TIMES, IT IS BETTER TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT


AND
LET PEOPLE WONDER IF YOU’RE A FOOL


THAN
TO OPEN IT AND REMOVE ALL DOUBT.





Proverbs
17:28 (NIV)
says Even
fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they
hold their tongues.”




40.
SOMETIMES THE LORD CALMS THE STORM,


SOMETIMES
HE LETS THE STORM RAGE


AND
CALMS HIS CHILD.




Philippians
4:7 (NIV)
says And
the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your
hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
