Wisdom from Twitter

I know, right? Who would’ve thought that a social networking site full of microblogs limited to 140 characters would do a work in my heart? Here are some of the quotes that I’ve read on twitter that have softened my heart, renewed my mind, and strengthened my faith.

In Gethsemane the holiest of all petitioners prayed three times that a certain cup might pass from Him. It did not.—C.S.Lewis

God is committed to your happiness but only to your happiness in Him. There is no other kind, not now, not later. Only counterfeits.—Larry Crabb

We value healing for our pain more than pardon for our sin.—Larry Crabb

Do I want to know God, or do I just want a way out, a way to feel better?—Larry Crabb

What good is our busy religion if we have lost majesty, reverence, worship--an awareness of the divine?—AW Tozer

There are many of us who are willing to do great things for the Lord but few of us are willing to do little things.—Moody (Tweeted by The Gospel Coalition)

It is very tempting to work to convince yourself that what you really need is external change not internal rescue.—Paul David Tripp

Faith in God is more than believing the right things. It's living the right way because you believe the right things.—Paul David Tripp
