New week quotes

Abraham Lincoln sets our minds racing with some of his brilliant quotes. I hope and pray that some of his thoughts inspire you today.

"Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing."
"Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?"
"Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm."
"Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right."
Once you have reflected on them, please let me know which one stood out for you. 
Be Blessed.
Grace and peace,

Having God on our side seems to me to be a rather arrogant attitude. Who are we to dictate where God stands?

However being on God's side to me means doing what He desires from us. It means we strive to please God and live our lives out in a godly manner.

So it's not about having the almighty God on our side but rather that it is us that need to be on His side.
That way we will be living a righteous life and much less likely to get into situations where we need to say I have God on my side.

I hope I make some sort of sence...
