Thoughts from Rick Warren

On understanding life . . .
"You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense.”

On humility . . .
“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less.”

On dependence . . .
“You never know God is all you need until God is all you have.”

On the Church . . .
“You don’t judge the strength of an army by how many soldiers sit and eat in the mess hall, but by how they perform on the front line. Likewise a church’s strength is not seen in how many show up, but in how many serve in the ministry.”
