Today's words deal with my focus this week: happiness and grace.
The first quote is from a book that I have read off an on for years (Freedom of Simplicity). I found myself re-reading parts of it this week. The second quote is from one of my favorite authors and it touched my heart yesterday.
Never put happiness at center stage. It is the by-product of a life of service, never the chief end of life. Happiness is not a right to be grasped but a serendipity to be enjoyed.
Richard J. Foster, Freedom of Simplicity
Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God's grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God's grace.
Jerry Bridges, The Discipline of Grace
