Godly People, Godly Sayings
As many of you know, I am a lover of quotes.
Here are a few godly quotes I have found that I would like to share with you.
They do not come from any single theological persuasion but instead come from men and women who have the fruit of Christ in their life.
I hope you enjoy these quotes as much as I have.

Why I Love Short Godly Thoughts
I find great instruction in the words of men and women of God who have walked with Jesus in depths I am nowhere close to.
I hope you have found the same as you read the words and hearts of these godly people. How much do they stand out as different, as having more depth than anything we hear from our pulpits today or from Christian TV?
I think maybe in this instance, we should delve deep and find out more about these men and women of faith, and model ourselves more after them than our modern church leaders.
