J. Oswald Sanders Sayings: We should always aim to read something different=not only the writers with whom we agree, but those with whom we are ready to do battle.

J. Oswald Sanders Sayings: True greatness,true leadership,is found in giving yourself in service to others, not in coaxing or inducing others to serve you. True service is never without cost. Often it comes with a painful baptism of suffering. But the true spiritual leader is focused on the service he and she can render to God and other people, not on the residuals and perks of high office or holy title. We must aim to put more into life than we take out.
