Quote of the Week

"The noblest conquest of all is to rule your own spirit... To be content in any condition of life is challenging--it is a holy valor deliverable only by the Holy Spirit. To be calm and patient in a changing and dangerous world is worthy of a garland of honor...[and] to be content while denying yourself is sacred."

- Thomas Watson, 17th-century Puritan pastor, from his book The Art of Divine Contentment
