Self-Control Quotes

  • Quote #1439


    quote 1439

    “People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.” 
    - D.A. Carson

    "Don’t eat till your stomach cries out. Don’t sleep till you can’t stay awake. Don’t open your mouth till it’s the truth opens it."
