"Compliments" by Francois Fenelon

Don't let compliments you receive from worthy people go to your head. On the other hand,do not let false humility keep you from accepting God's comfort when He sends it through others.

God wants you to take what comes and not run after what doesn't come. Simply accept what is given to you. Look only to God. Learn to live without things God sees fit to take away  from you. There are certain things that God wants you to be detached from. Do you see that God allows people to respond to you in many different ways in order to mold you?

Trust God without fear. Learn to accept your weakness as you allow God to change you. There is no use being impatient or depressed about your faults. Make a habit of inwardly bringing yourself before God as often as you can during the day. Doing this can calm you down.


  1. I saw this thought while skimming through looking for neat quotes to write on my Facebook status. While re-writing it, it hit me. This was for me, but feel also we ALL need to remember this. I hope it affects you in the way our Lover wants it to. In the way he speaks to you. I also hope that if you don't already talk to him and "bring" everything before Him, you would. It isn't easy for me, but He is all that matters.

  2. Benjamyn,

    Thanks for bringing us quotes worthy to ponder.

  3. Thank you for your comment on my recent post. :) It's good to meet another fan of Hudson Taylor (just read your post on April 13; great quotations!). The LORD's blessings on your week!
