Great distinction between generals and shepherds:
“Rupert Greeves was no general. Generals spend men. Generals expect sacrifice from those who stand with them. Shepherds do not lead their sheep into battle with wolves. They fight alone.”
—N.D. Wilson in Empire of Bones
Proverbs 24:11 and “The Patient Within” #defundpp
Great brief biography of John Calvin. We liked Calvin so much we named our son after him.
“[T]he old humility made a man doubtful about his efforts, which might make him work harder. But the new humility makes a man doubtful about his aims, which will make him stop working altogether.” –G. K. Chesterton
