Instruction of a Father

Sayings I’ve picked up along the way … that I’d like to pass on.

Things are never so bad that you should not pray, nor so good that you shouldn’t.

God loves you, God is in control, and you have a unique purpose in His plan.

You can’t look down on someone if you’re always looking up.

All we have to fear is pride and unbelief.

Let others spend your time … as you let them spend your money.

No honest person is irritated by someone checking them out.

If a million people do a foolish thing, it’s still a foolish thing.

Don’t fear being wrong … only staying that way.

When considering a spouse, above all, look for a good relationship with parents.

Rather die than lie.

The worst that can happen, usually doesn’t; it’s seldom as bad as you think.

Truth is more important than people.

People are more important than things.

The most significant choices are made in youth … when one is least prepared.

It’s seldom if ever good to give to a man that can work.

Let your medicine be your food, and your food be your medicine.

In order to enjoy what money can buy, you must have the things it can’t.

In business, if it’s not in writing … it’s not.

The day the music dies … make your own.

The wealthiest folks are those most content with what they have.

When they tell you it will cost more tomorrow, ask them why.

Don’t do anything drastic when you’re angry.

If it’s time to make a decision … make the best one you can.

Fear only the displeasure of God.

A moment spent sulking, regretting, worrying, in self pity.. is a moment lost forever.

If you’re not burning in Hell, you have a lot to be thankful for.

Seek wisdom since … by design … God’s voice is seldom heard.

Live life to die well.

Sing like no one’s listening… dance like no one’s watching.

Love like you’ve never been hurt.

What would Jesus do?

Don’t charge for smiles.

There’s no such thing as a private sin… or a little one.

Never make it your business to change another… repentance is God’s business.

If you aim at nothing, you are likely to hit it.

Give with no strings attached.

Rather your foot slip, than your tongue.

God is a majority.

Life’s tough, but it’s tougher when you’re stupid.

If you think you can or can’t, you’re probably right.

Only dead people know it all.

Never look for a job when you’re unemployed.

Most people prefer a problem they can’t fix to a fix they can’t understand.

An unused solution is a wrong solution.

Accidents seldom happen.

Every sin problem is a selfishness problem.

Consequences are the best teacher.

Loving your neighbor … is not a suggestion.

Just scratching a mental itch …

The difference between dogs and men: rescue a dog… and he won’t bite you.

Leave God’s work in God’s hands.

God helps those who … humble themselves.

It is better to be righteous than right … and never choose between the two.

Great things can be reduced to small things … and small things to nothing.

From a little distance one can perceive an order in what at first seems confusing.

Great work is done like the ant — by tiny but untiring and regular additions.

Your only enemies are pride and unbelief.

Satan has but a single weapon: the lie.

Just 20 seconds of courage …
