BEST Quotes From MC'09

This weekend, Healing Place Church hosted their annual Men's Conference (MC'09) at the Highland Campus. Clay was not able to go because he is studying to take his boards, and (obviously) I wasn't there, but HPC provided a free, live webcast of the event & I kept up with everything through the Twitter reports from friends.

From everything I've read, it has been an amazing event and it's not over yet!

Here, I've provided just a FEW of the amazing quotes I've heard coming out of MC'09.
Check 'em out:

Pastor Mike Haman: "The most dangerous thing in your house is not a gun, knives or power tools. it is your lazy boy easy chair. Comfort has a way of limiting us to the opportunities around us."

Paul Louis Cole: "What you believe WILL determine your destiny. Do you live by conviction or convenience?"
(In other words: don't let your morality determine your theology -- my translation)

Paul Louis Cole: "When a man acts like a child it forces his wife to act like his mother."

Paul Louis Cole: "Men: Your wife should have ALL your login/password info for all your internet accounts. There is NO good reason not to."

(NFL running back & MVP) Shaun Alexander: "Are you doing your assignment or are you just looking for the perks of the job? Don't forget your duty and relationship (with God)."

Shaun Alexander: "
Never let your desires shift from God to desiring the gifts of God. Don't chase the gifts, chase God."

Shaun Alexander: "When you get out of order and good things still happen, you're in trouble. You've been deceived into thinking you didn't need to obey.

Paul Louis Cole: "Your kids may not always listen to you but they WILL imitate you. What are you giving them to imitate?"

Bro. Wayne Austin: "As a dad, you're only as happy as your saddest child."

Paul Louis Cole: "Nothing just happens for you as a husband and a dad; You have to work at it. Live on purpose."

Pastor Dino Rizzo: "Marriage isn't about me seeing MY dream fulfilled. Work to see God's purpose fulfilled in your spouse's life."

Bro. Wayne Austin: "When you love your family, you are putting Christ first. His bride -- the Church -- was here before you and it will be here after you."

Bro. Wayne Austin: "God didn't call me to die for His bride - He called me to die for mine. Lay down your life for her - as Christ did for His bride."

Paul Louis Cole: "What you are focused on will determine where you go. Focus on where you want to go, not on what you're going through."

Pastor Mark Stermer: "
In a tough economy, God wants to BE first, not CUT first. If you aren't tithing, start NOW. Give your way through the tough times."

Julio Melara: "It isn't what comes in that determines our lifeline, but what we give out. The righteous will continue to be generous."

Dave Ohlerking: "The kids we help in Africa don't know a thing about the Dow Jones. Make sure to remember them."
