Sermon Quotes: "The Story Within The Story Within The Story"

“In short, ‘fearing God’ is commonly in Scripture a virtual abbreviation for ‘believing in God, and therefore fearing the consequence of not pleasing him, thus being a person of moral conviction and righteous actions.” Douglas Stuart

“Sometimes standing against evil is more important than defeating it. The greatest heroes stand because it is right to do so, not because they believe they will walk away with their lives. Such selfless courage is a victory in itself.” N. D. Wilson

“With all these women against him, perhaps Pharaoh should have worried as much about the Hebrew girls as he worried about the Hebrew boys!” Philip Ryken

“[A mother is surrounded] with very young children, who require to be taught not so much anything as everything. Babies need not to be taught a trade, but to be introduced to a world… I can understand how this might exhaust the mind, but I cannot imagine how it could narrow it. How can it be a large career to teach other people’s children [arithmetic], and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness.” G. K. Chesterton
