Men must think biblically of women and push against the stereotypes of women as mere sexual creatures or servants put here for our pleasure or comfort. Because of the Imago Dei, men must think biblically of women and treasure them as sisters and co-heirs, daughters of the King and glorious, not dismissing them intellectually or robbing them of the right to exercise their gifts within God’s beautiful design.
There is a difference between listening and hearing, just as there is a difference between seeing and knowing.
Meg Cabot, All-American Girl (via a-thousand-words)
what if people loved to tell others about Jesus as much as they did about themselves?
what if our desire was greater that people would know Him more than getting them to know all about us?
what if we moved from a self-centered culture to being Christ-centered?
what if we put God’s greatness at the forefront instead of seeking to portray our own?
what if the image we want people to see is a clearer picture of who God, instead of promoting our own image?
Don’t equate the presence of God with a good mood or a pleasant temperament. God is near whether you are happy or not.
Max Lucado (via littlethingsaboutgod)
I am weak, but Christ is strong; and today, just as everyday, I need Him to carry me.

Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.
Mary Pipher, Reviving Ophelia (via forlornes)
why does this have 32k notes? it’s just a picture of a knife in a ranch bottle, is there some unspoken joke that 32 thousand people share? what is going on here, i dont get it. it’s just a fucking picture of a knife in a ranch bottle. is there some spiritual connection people have to this picture? is there some ominous and mystical reasoning that this has 32 thousand notes? do people reblog this because it makes them look like some indie blogger? or is there just something funny to this? someone please explain
no one tell him
