THE THINGS YOU MOST WISH WERE REMOVED FROM YOUR LIFE ARE OFTEN THE VERY THINGS THAT GOD IS USING TO SHAPE YOU AND MAKE YOU INTO THE BELIEVER OF CHARACTER HE WANTS YOU TO BE. ~ Rick Warren
WE MUST ACCEPT OUR LIMITATIONS, AND THE QUICKEST WAY TO BURN OUT IS TO TRY TO BE SUPERMAN. HUMILITY IS BEING HONEST ABOUT YOUR WEAKNESSES. ~ Rick Warren
IT IS NOT A SIN TO BE TEMPTED; THE SIN IS WHEN WE GIVE IN TO TEMPTATION.

~ Rick Warren
God has promised to give us wisdom, if we will ask. Wisdom is seeing life from God's point of view. Wisdom is the ability to make decisions the way God makes decisions. Think about this: God never makes a bad decision. He never makes a mistake. He says if we trust Him and listen to Him, He will guide us. But we must ask in faith. 
~ Rick Warren



When we look at a situation from God's viewpoint, we realize the long-term consequences of sin are greater than any short-term pleasure sin might provide. ~ Rick Warren
How do you know if you have a servant's heart? You don't take offense when someone treats you like a servant.

There are far more people in the world who are ready to receive Christ than there are believers ready to witness to them.

~ Rick Warren
Churches without clear, strong convictions will never attract the level of commitment that Christ deserves. We must burn with the conviction that the kingdom of God is the greatest cause in the world.
~ Rick Warren
WE MUST LEARN TO USE THE RIGHT TOOLS IN BUILDING A CHURCH. IF ALL YOU HAVE IS A HAMMER IN YOUR MINISTRY TOOLBOX, YOU’LL TEND TO TREAT EVERYTHING AS A NAIL!


~ Rick Warren
SURRENDERING TO JESUS IS LAYING DOWN MY OWN PLANS AND USING MY LIFE FOR THE BENEFIT OF OTHER PEOPLE.

HAPPINESS ISN'T GETTING EVERYTHING YOU WANT; IT'S ENJOYING WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE.

~ Rick Warren
THE ANSWER TO ENGAGING CULTURE IS NOT ISOLATION OR IMITATION – ITS INCARNATION. THE WORD BECAME FLESH. ~ Rick Warren
Never waste energy trying to be well-known. Today’s hero is tomorrow’s zero. Work on character and leave your reputation to God. ~ Rick Warren
FORGIVENESS MUST BE IMMEDIATE, WHETHER OR NOT A PERSON ASKS FOR IT. TRUST MUST BE REBUILT OVER TIME. ~ Rick Warren
THE BIBLE SAYS GOD TOOK SIX DAYS TO CREATE THE WORLD AND RESTED ON THE SEVENTH. WAS GOD TIRED? OF COURSE NOT! GOD DOESN’T GET TIRED. SO WHY DID GOD REST ON THE SEVENTH DAY? HE WAS MODELING AN IMPORTANT PRINCIPAL OF LIFE. ~ Rick Warren
CHARACTER IS NEVER BUILT IN A CLASSROOM; IT IS BUILT IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF LIFE. ~ Rick Warren
THE NEW TESTAMENT REPEATEDLY TEACHES THAT OUR ACTIONS AND ATTITUDES REVEAL OUR MATURITY MORE THAN OUR AFFIRMATIONS…IT IS FRUIT, NOT KNOWLEDGE, THAT DEMONSTRATES A PERSON'S MATURITY. ~ Rick Warren
