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."
