Today’s Quote on Trust

“We can’t solve modern problems by going back in time. Retreating to the safety of the familiar is an understandable response, but God has called us to a life of faith. And faith requires us to face the unknown while trusting Him completely.”  ~Charles R. Swindoll

Scripture for reflection: Hebrews 11:1

Today’s Quote on Suffering:

“The dominant characteristic of an authentic spiritual life is the gratitude that flows from trust – not only for all the gifts that I receive from God, but gratitude for all the suffering. Because in that purifying experience, suffering has often been the shortest path to intimacy with God.”  ~Brennan Manning

Scripture for reflection: Romans 5:1-5

Scripture for reflection: Matthew 18:15-35
