Think of forgiveness as a weapon, not a weakness.
The trouble is if you don’t spend your life yourself, other people spend it for you.
Praise not the day until evening has come, a woman until she is burnt, a sword until it is tried, a maiden until she is married, ice until it has been crossed, beer until it has been drunk.
Do not ever allow anybody to plant a seed in your head that you cannot flourish without them. Everything you need for your growth is in you.
If you are in crisis of who you are and your self-image, then everything is going to be distorted because of one crisis that hasn’t been resolved.
Pastor A.R Bernard
