We crave for meaning and purpose, security and significance, love and hope.
Billy Graham has offered wise quote-worthy advise on these and many subjects for generations.
This book — Billy Graham in Quotes – provides sound bites with wisdom for the ages. Franklin Graham, Billy’s son, and Donna Lee Toney have collected thousands of quotes gathered into 107 categories (listed below) that will delight, motivate and enrich readers.
Here are ten quotes that I valued. You may value others. I loved this collection of wise words and sage suggestions, and I think that you will too.
“Though we have less to worry about than previous generations, we have more worry. Though we have it easier than our forefathers, we have more uneasiness. Though we have less real cause for anxiety than our predecessors, we are inwardly more anxious.”
“Jesus didn’t use subtlety or gimmicks to gain followers. Rather, He honestly laid before them the tough demands of discipleship—total commitment and total involvement.”
“Commitment means burning all bridges behind you.”
“Faith points us beyond our problems to the hope we have in Christ.”
“Our world today desperately hungers for hope, and yet uncounted people have almost given up. There is despair and hopelessness on every hand. Let us be faithful in proclaiming the hope that is in Jesus!”
“When Christ’s love fills our hearts, it puts selfishness on the run.”
“God is sending forth His message of love, but you must tune in. You must be willing to listen and to receive His message and then to obey it.”
“God’s love is unchangeable; He knows exactly what we are and loves us anyway.”
“Nothing brings more joy than a good marriage, and nothing brings more misery than a bad marriage.”
“Gardens don’t grow by themselves; they need to be tended and cultivated and weeded. The same is true of a marriage.”
