It’s better to give, than to get

It’s better to forgive, than to forsake

It’s better to build up, than to tear down

It’s better to encourage, than to discourage

It’s better to speak kind words, than to repeat hurtful ones

In a world filled with troubles, it’s better to ease burdens than to add to them

It’s better not to blame others, but to take personal responsibility for one’s own actions

It’s better not to blame your own troubles on your circumstances, but to strive to learn from them and persevere

It’s better to forget your past failures, than to use them for an excuse to fail

It’s better to be a peace maker, than a peace breaker

It’s better to leave a place better off than you found it, rather than to mess it up

It’s better to be a good friend. To expend yourself in loving others. To demand or expect nothing in return. To want the best for others and to be glad when others succeed in their doings.

It’s better to believe that God can make a way, than to cheer for hopelessness

It’s better, far better, to love than to hate

Having served as pastor at Lewis and Clark Bible Church, in Astoria, Oregon, for almost three decades, my wife’s cancer diagnosis led to my retirement and subsequent move to Heppner to be near our two grandchildren. I divide my time between caring for Laura and working as a part time hospice chaplain and spending time with family and spoiling my chocolate lab.
