Spiritual maturity begins when we realize that we are God’s guests in this world. We are not householders, but pilgrims; not landlords, but tenants; not owners, but guests.
C. Willard Fetter
An evil man is held captive by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him. He will die for lack of self-control; he will be lost because of his great foolishness.
The New Living Translation
To pray is to expose ourselves to God as we do to heat or sunlight.
