The Words of Our Elders: Vance Havner (1901-1986)

God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever. ~ Vance Havner

The words of our elders, are words of wisdom.

The Words of Our Elders: Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758)

A truly humble man is sensible of his natural distance from God; of his dependence on Him; of the insufficiency of his own power and wisdom; and that it is by God’s power that he is upheld and provided for, and that he needs God’s wisdom to lead and guide him, and His might to enable him to do what he ought to do for Him. ~ Jonathan Edwards

The words of our elders, are words of wisdom.
