If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. — by C. S. Lewis (quote from here)
The pictures in this video show the sort of glory few of us will see in this life — at least too few notice.
Galatians 5:22-26 Good News Translation (GNT)
22 But the Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,23 humility, and self-control. There is no law against such things as these.24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have put to death their human nature with all its passions and desires.25 The Spirit has given us life; he must also control our lives.26 We must not be proud or irritate one another or be jealous of one another.
Words From The Past
I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. -- Benjamin Franklin (from here)
