Crumbs – The Road to Hell Isn’t the only Road Paved with Good Intentions

“The safest road to hell is the gradual one – the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.” C. S. Lewis

                                                                

“The road to perdition has ever been accompanied by lip service to an ideal.”  Albert Einstein

                                                                              

 “Good intentions are not enough. They’ve never put an onion in the soup yet.” Sonya Levien

                 “It’s choice—not chance—that determines your destiny.” Jean Nidetch

“Go stand at the crossroads and look around. Ask for directions to the old road, the tried and true road. Then take it. Discover the right route for your souls. But they said, ‘Nothing doing. We aren’t going that way.’” Jeremiah 6:16 The Message

                                                                                                 

                                     “Each day is a new beginning. You can start fresh, anticipating what today will bring. Or you can just settle for yesterday’s doubts, fears, or worries. Which road will you take? Do you take the path to the clear present or the shadows of the past?” Eve Evangelista, Rise of Sea-Landers

“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.” Romans 12:1-2 The Message
