"The purity that God asks in your and my life, is not a purity the see's how close you can get to some imaginary line, it is a purity that has you running as fast as you can in the opposite direction." Joshua Harris

Boys to Men

"Boys [should be] inured from childhood to trifling risks and slight dangers of every possible description, such as tumbling into ponds and off of trees, etc., in order to strengthen their nervous system.... They ought to practice leaping off heights into deep water. They ought never to hesitate to cross a stream over a narrow unsafe plank for fear of a ducking. They ought never to decline to climb up a tree, to pull fruit merely because there is a possibility of their falling off and breaking their necks. I firmly believe that boys were intended to encounter all kinds of risks, in order to prepare them to meet and grapple with risks and dangers incident to man's career with cool, cautious self-possession... -R.M. Ballantyne

I really like this Quote just thought I would share it with yall.

A very neat quote! :)

I just found your blog (and am now a follower!) and I just wanted to say that it is a wonderful encouragement to me as a young, Christian lady! Nothing makes me happier than seeing young men striving to live like Christ did: against the flow!

I look forward to reading more posts! ^^

Your sister in Christ,
