Hearts and Minds – Spirituality

 

People of all religions can find inspiration
to do more good, so that the beauty
of our religious buildings will better
reflect the beauty of our lives.

 

Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
And he led them forth by the right way
and filled their hungry soul with goodness.
  – Psalm 107: 5-9

Rejoice and be glad…for the Lord God is your exceeding great reward.
– Isaiah 66:10; Genesis 15:1

The Almighty will deliver you from evil.
– Job 5:17-19

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.

And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.
– Matthew 22:34-40

[God says,] "This rather is the practice that I wish:
releasing those bound unjustly,
untying the thongs of the yoke,
setting free the oppressed, breaking every yoke,
sharing your bread with the hungry,
sheltering the oppressed and the homeless,
clothing the naked when you see them
and not turning your back on your own flesh.
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn;
your wound shall quickly be healed;
your vindication shall go before you,
and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call and the Lord will answer."
– Isaiah 58:6-9

In thought, faith
In word, wisdom
In deed, courage
In life, service
  – Anonymous

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not lack.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for you are with me.
You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
– Psalm 23

Can a woman forget her suckling child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, yet I will not forget you.
– Isaiah 49:15
God’s gifts put man’s best dreams to shame.
– Elizabeth Barrett Browning

To love another person is to see the face of God.
– Victor Hugo

To say I am made in the image of God is to say that love is the reason for my existence, for God is love.
– Thomas Kemps

What we are is God’s gift to us. What we become is our gift to God.
– Eleanor Powell

God’s last name is not ‘Damnit.’
– Author Unknown

I just hope God does not get bored of dreaming me.
– Author Unknown

The less you open your heart to others the more your heart suffers.
– Deepak Chopra

Heaven means to be one with God.
– Confucius

 

Where I live, if someone gives you a hug, its from the heart.
– Steve Irwin 

In the attitude of silence, the soul finds the path in a clearer light and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.
– Ghandi

There are no accidents…there is only some purpose that we haven’t yet understood.
– Deepak Chopra
