To remember what you've learned about God, you need to keep a journal.
Then, you can look back and remember what
God taught you so you can be encouraged in the dark times of
your life and know that God is still working for your good.
Rick Warren Words of Encouragement |
Your life isn't an accident. You have a destiny, one that only you can complete.
Rick Warren Destiny |
Civility is just treating other people the way you'd like to be treated,
even if you disagree
with them - even if they're flat-out, dead wrong. Even if they're
fighting against you, you
treat them the way you would like to be treated. That's civility.
Rick Warren Graduation Quotes |
The problem with stuff is, the more you have, the more it takes to take
care of it all - the more you have to clean it, the more you have to protect
more you have to insure it, and the more you have to repair it.

External evidence includes things like the number of copies of the Bible
from around the time that it was written.
That's what historians look for to see if a book is accurate and true
to dismiss any possibility that a book was
changed as it was passed down from generation to generation.
There are 5,366 copies of the Bible from when
it was written to just 70 years afterward.
Rick Warren Quotes about Books |
Think about this: God never makes a bad decision.
He never makes a mistake. He says if we trust him and listen to him,

Hope isn't the same as optimism. It isn't the belief that something bad
will turn out well. It's the absolute
confidence that every part of your life ultimately makes
sense regardless of how it turns out this side of eternity.
Rick Warren Hope |

It will illuminate, protect, and energize you.
Rick Warren Love |
Let's just be honest about it. Gossip, in its essence, is a form of retaliation.
You're trying to get back at the person who offended you by talking
about them behind their back.
Rick Warren Gossip |
God can even take the negative and turn it into a positive if we let him.
Use irritation as an opportunity to become more like Christ.
Rick Warren Opportunity |
We get so preoccupied with our own things that we forget that people
are the priority in life.
Rick Warren Quotes about Life |
When you get to the point in your life where you can say,
"I praise the Lord no matter what happens," that is a confidence
that you won't find anywhere in Hollywood, on Capitol Hill, or
on Wall Street. That is a confidence built on a relationship with God!
Rick Warren Confidence |
The most common mistake Christians make in worship today
is seeking an experience rather than seeking God.
Rick Warren Mistake Quotes |
If you're going to entrust your life and your future to someone or something,
you'd better choose someone who has your best
interest at heart, knows everything, is perfect, and will never lie to you.
That kind of limits your options - to God.
Rick Warren Trust |

brokenness because, quite frankly, it reminds us of our own.
