Inspirational Christian Sayings

"Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, love is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes in all things, hopes all things, endures all things."
- 1 Corinthians Ch. 13
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
Deuteronomy 6
"For what profit is it to a man if he gains the world and loses his own soul?"
- Matthew 24:14,
Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tounges, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. For we know partially and we prophesy partially, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I used to talk as a child, think as a child, reason as a child; when I became a man, I put aside childish things. At present, we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known. So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
- 1 Corinthians Ch. 13 New American Standard Bible
Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven
18:3-20 (KJV)
It is not how much we do,
but how much love we put in the doing.
It is not how much we give,
but how much love we put in the giving.
~
If we really want to love
we must learn how to forgive.
~
We can do no great things;
only small things with great love.
~
Love cannot remain by itself -- it has no meaning.
Love has to be put into action, and that action is service

Strengthen the bonds that unite us and eliminate all that has divided us in the past."
- Pope John Paul II

"People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway."
From The Paradoxical Commandments, by Dr. Kent M. Keith. Mother Teresa quoted this often. I wrote a commentary on this text.
