“Everyone needs a house to live in, but a supportive family is what builds a home.”
Anthony Liccione

Charles R. Swindoll
“The size of a challenge should never be measured by what we have to offer. It will never be enough. Furthermore, provision is God's responsibility, not ours. We are merely called to commit what we have - even if it's no more than a sack lunch.”
Charles R. Swindoll

Randy Alcorn
“Abundance isn't God's provision for me to live in luxury. It's his provision for me to help others live. God entrusts me with his money not to build my kingdom on earth, but to build his kingdom in heaven.”
Randy Alcorn, Money, Possessions and Eternity

Timothy Keller
“A job is a vocation only if someone else calls you to do it for them rather than for yourself. And so our work can be a calling only if it is reimagined as a mission of service to something beyond merely our own interests. Thinking of work mainly as a means of self-fulfillment and self-realization slowly crushes a person.”
Timothy Keller, Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work to God's Plan for the World

Anthony Liccione

Dallas Willard
“The cautious faith that never saws off a limb on which it is sitting, never learns that unattached limbs may find strange unaccountable ways of not falling.”

Shane Claiborne
“God's people are not to accumulate stuff for tomorrow but to share indiscriminately with the scandalous and holy confidence that God will provide for tomorrow. Then we need not stockpile stuff in barns or a 401(k), especially when there is someone in need.”
Shane Claiborne, Red Letter Revolution: What If Jesus Really Meant What He Said?

Corallie Buchanan
“When we look to God as provider, we are surrendering our independence and trusting someone else to meet our needs, over which we have no control. Letting go of our ‘dependence on independence’ and letting someone else take control goes against natural human instinct. We need to fight the urge to take over and just let God be God, because He can provide for us better than we can.”
Corallie Buchanan, Watch Out! Godly Women on the Loose

Charles R. Swindoll
“The matters we or the world might consider trivial, He cares about and wants to remedy. He longs to relieve our worries and has promised to supply our most fundamental needs.”
Charles R. Swindoll

“I still find my corrupt heart longing for tomorrow's bread. I can make a good argument to the Lord about how effective I can be if He would supply me with enough advance funds. It's a little frightening to pray for TODAY's bread. That means I must pray again for tomorrow and believe again for tomorrow. My greedy heart is willing to be corrupted by a little bit of riches so that I see my warehouse full of loaves. I can make a good argument about how God won’t have to be bothered with me every day if He would only advance me about ten years worth of bread.”
Gayle D. Erwin, The Yhwh Style

“The plants we've chosen will collect and cycle Earth's minerals,water, and air;shade the soil and renew it with leafy mulch; and yield fruits and greens for people and wildlife.”
Toby Hemenway, Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-scale Permaculture

Randy Alcorn
“If economic catastrophe does come, will it be a time that draws Christians together to share every resource we have, or will it drive us apart to hide in our own basements or mountain retreats, guarding at gunpoint our private stores from others? If we faithfully use our assets for his kingdom now, rather than hoarding them, can't we trust our faithful God to provide for us then?”
Randy Alcorn, Money, Possessions and Eternity

Jim George
“Just as water is the only thing that can relieve thirst in the desert, the provision of God's Word is the only thing that can satisfy our spiritual thirst.”
Jim George, A Man After God's Own Heart

“God is pleased continually to vary His mode of dealing with us, in order that we may not be tempted to trust in donors, or in circumstances, but in Him alone, and to keep our eye fixed upon Him.”
― George Mueller, Answers To Prayer

Israelmore Ayivor
“Your dreams can earn you money and provision when you don’t only have fans, but customers.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Shaping the dream

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Even if you love a lady, don't say you will take care of her while someone else is catering for your needs.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

“Greed is mistaken nobility. Instead of robbing all the pain and hardship from people's lives and rescuing them from danger, greed robs provisions from providers.”
Justin K. McFarlane Beau
