Words

A collection of some of my most favorite words/quotes/verses etc. etc.

“Doing nothing is a good way to change nothing.” -Kid President

“What would our world look like if more people started projects, made a ruckus, and took risks?” -Seth Godin

“That’s the way the chemistry of God’s love and our creativity work together when combined. No reservoir can hold it, no disappointment can stop it, and no impediment can contain it. It can’t be waved off, put off, or shut down. It doesn’t take no for an answer. Instead it assumes yes is the answer even when it sounds an awful lot like a no to everyone else.” – Bob Goff (Love Does pg. 213)

“(To Jesus)When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?’ Then the King will say, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’”- Matthew 25:40

“We could just do life like a pick up basketball game. If you’ve got a good hook shot, you bring that. If you’re not a good shooter, you pass the ball. What’s distinctive about this way of doing life is that there are no score keepers or mascots. You just bring all the game you’ve got. Not surprisingly, the game you’ve got always seems to be enough.” -Bob Goff (Love Does pg. 208)

“I pray that when you are bored and tired and discouraged and frustrated, when you feel futile and small and ridiculous, you will never, never, never give up.” -Sarah Bessey (Jesus Feminist pg. 196)
