More from God's Little Instruction Book for Women

The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.

“Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2

No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it for anyone else.

People may doubt what you say, but they will always believe what you do.

“Let us not love (merely) in theory or in speech but in deed and in truth – in practice and in sincerity.” 1 John 3:18

The smallest deed is better than the greatest intention!

“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Ps. 118:24

Life is not a problem to be solved, but a gift to be enjoyed.

“As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men.” Galatians 6:10

God never asks about our ability or our inability – just our availability.

Failure isn’t falling down. It’s staying down.
