The Serenity Prayer

January 28, 2014


Grant me the serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change,

Courage to change the
things I can, and the
wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardship as the
pathway to peace.

Taking, as He did, this
sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it.

Trusting that He will make
all things right if I
surrender to His Will;

That I may be reasonably happy
in this life, and supremely
happy with Him forever in
the next.


NOTE: This is the full Serenity Prayer attributed to Rev. Karl Paul Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971). It was reportedly written by him in 1926. Niebuhr was a Lutheran pastor and theologian. Usually the “Serenity Prayer” is quoted using the first 2 verses only.

Adrain Rogers quote on economics

January 23, 2014

From a sermon by Dr. Adrian Rodgers:

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it. You don’t multiply wealth by dividing it. Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn’t first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving. The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don’t have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don’t get to enjoy the fruits of their labor.”
