- “The Good is the Enemy of the Best” (good things can often crowd out our time so we never get to the best things God wants us to do).
- “This book (the Bible) will keep you from sin or sin will keep you from this book.”
- “The non-Christian is not the enemy, he is the victim of the enemy.”
- “We live in a Fallen World.” (Long before thinking Biblically was a thing. It came across as an amazing revelation at the time.)
Of course, you will want to jot down your own aphorisms and copy down your favorite proverbs from the Bible. It would be amazing to have this Journal of Wisdom to pass along to future generations and allow your children and their families to add to it. I often think about putting all of these things in one source so that they can be referred to long after I’m gone.
