Some quotes...

"Growing old...that's earned." The Guardian
*Making a point that if you're older and have wrinkles, it means you've been blessed to enjoy the sun. If you're older and have achy, sore muscles, it means you've been blessed to work. Etc.
.

This past weekend I listened to a sermon titled "Being Salt and Light", preached by Dr. Tony Evans at a Promise Keepers conference (in 1995, I think). It was nice and fiery, and filled with lots of good quotes. For example:

"We don't need no secret agent Christians!"

"You are not a nurse. No, no, no. You are God's representative in the field of nursing. You are there to show people what God looks like when He cares for people. You are not a corporate executive. No, no, no. You are God's representative in the corporate world. You are there to show people what God looks like when He makes a deal." (Might be kinda paraphrased, but you get the point).

Anyways, just thought I'd share.
