Thursday Pearls

"Maturity starts with the willingness to give oneself.
Childishness is characterized by self-centeredness.
It is only the emotionally and spiritually mature who are
able to lay down their for others, those who are "masters of
themselves that they might be the servants of others."

The specific ways in which the great principle of the cross
works in daily living are expressed most perfectly in the Love
Chapter of the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13. Here we find proof of the
stark and sacrificial rather than emotional character
of love. Christian love is an action."

~ Elisabeth Elliot

Happiest of Thursdays, sweet readers...
