The princess mentality encourages the very worst in women: entitlement, indulgence, and superiority. It is the epitome of privilege without purpose.
I’ve never seen the dangers of privilege without purpose so starkly represented as in the lives of these two royal sisters, Elizabeth and Margaret.
I am constantly learning something new about forgiveness. It's a much deeper well than I ever suspected, and the joy that follows is greater all the time.
God's sovereignty is a life or death issue. If lordship and salvation are synonymous, then the importance of His sovereignty, which is Him ruling as Lord, is paramount.
Am I a giver or taker? This is not a question that is fun to consider, because the answer is found in God’s view of my life, not my personal assessment.
Desperation of the flesh is not the "sacrifice" of a broken and contrite heart that God responds to, but it can be a step in the right direction.
We can pray someone into their right mind, giving them complete clarity when they choose, but we cannot override their choice.

Sometimes I forget that this world is at war, and peace is the anomaly, not fighting.
