Time - Og Mandingo

Never allow anyone to rain on your parade and thus cast a pall of gloom and defeat on the entire day. Remember that no talent, no self-denial, no brains, no character, are required to set up in the fault-finding business. Nothing external can have any power over you unless you permit it.

Your time is too precious to be sacrificed in wasted days combating the menial forces of hate, jealously, and envy. Guard your fragile life carefully. Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces. - Og Mandingo

Quotable Quotes

” So much of what we deal with in day to day life is personal, subjective, emotional, reactionary, hurt, etc. None of this is dealt with in most Preaching, apologetics, exegesis or Eisegesis, eschatology, Soteriology ecclesiastical, etc. So the place where most of us spend our time, in the real world, has very little if anything to do where we are taught, exhorted, and even threatened to stay. We operate in the day to day world but are expected to think in the pseudo other world of the “apologetic” .

So what do we do, we spend much of our time, hand waving about how we dont hurt, we dont need, we understand, we accept, we have dealt with it, etc. When in reality we do hurt, we dont understand, we dont accept, we do need. Others do the same and thus we are accepted, Jesus stands at the door and knocks, wanting to explain, heal, accept, understand, deal with it, and just plain love us. Basically we are broken people who need a savior”
