Pride alone

I remember my first pastorate.

Virtually no salary, a wife and a newborn son.

We could have gotten food stamps, but there is something worse than living below the poverty line, and that is the indignity of having to ask for charity.

The ONE THING for today: Be easy on people when they come across like a little bantam rooster, it may be that all they’ve got is their pride.

We often make people pay dearly for what we think we give them.

Comtesse Diane, 1829-1899
