Nuggets on Complacency

Quotation Mark ImageI’m a history guy, always have been. One of the things I love about reading history is finding nuggets of truth and wisdom communicated in a memorable way. Here’s some nuggets on complacency, which I think is one of the biggest problems in the life of the believer today:

” He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really co-operating with it.” – Martin Luther King

“He that is too secure is not safe.” – Thomas Fuller

“Complacency is the deadly enemy of spiritual progress.” – A.W. Tozer

“The calm which puts us to sleep may be more fatal than a storm which keeps us wide awake.” – William S. Plumer

“Keep me, Lord, from ever hardening down into the state of being just another average Christian.” – A. W. Tozer
