When Caring for Your Neighbor Becomes a Compulsory Obligation

“When caring for your neighbor becomes a compulsory obligation imposed by government instead of voluntary, charity turns to confiscation and freedom to achieve to involuntary servitude. To liberals, compassion seems to be defined by how many people are dependent on the government; to conservatives, it’s defined by how many people no longer need help. One promotes dependence, the other freedom, responsibility and achievement.”

You Can’t Con People, for Long

Their Sense of Accomplishment and Achievement

 

“One of the problems when you become successful is that jealousy and envy inevitably follow.

As far as I’m concerned, if they had any real ability they wouldn’t be fighting me, they’d be doing something constructive themselves.”

All He Asked You to Do Was Write It

“Don’t worry about who’s going to pay for it.
Don’t worry about who’s going to execute it.
Don’t worry about who’s going to stand in agreement with it.
All He asked you to do was write the vision and then, read it.
Remind yourself of what you said. Remind yourself of where you’re going.”

But it’s all for a reason. … When I look at my life and how far I’ve come,
I have to say it’s a masterpiece. I’m blessed through it all.”
