Two Quotes and a Scripture

Madison Park, CNN, 10/04/10
"From Dr. Spock to Annette Funicello, growing up in the '50s and '60s, we grew up thinking we were special. Somehow, we metamorphosed from peace, love and happiness to a me generation."

"We started accumulating wealth and began focusing on providing for ourselves and our families. That's what we did and now, we're beginning to look around. What's it all about?" he said. "Many of us are divorced. Our families are spread to the seven winds. We're disappointed."1
Jim Elliott, evangelical Christian missionary to Ecuador, October 28, 1949
"He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose"2
The Apostle Paul, Galatians 6:7 (King James Version)
"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."
Something, today, to think about.
