    Les tweets de Nicky Gumbel

    J’ai découvert récemment les messages diffusés sur Twitter par Nicky Gumbel: de brefs aphorismes, remplis de spiritualité et de foi vraie. Occasionnellement j’ajouterai des aphorismes d’autres sources.
    Voir plus bas l’historique.. Je mets désormais les plus récents en premier:

    « Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere. »

    « Speak in such a way that others love to listen to you. Listen in such a way that others love to speak to you. »

    « Be selective in your battles, sometimes peace is better than being right. »

    « A great relationship doesn’t happen because of the love you had in the beginning, but how well you continue building love until the end. »

    « The most precious gift you can give someone is the gift of your time and attention. »

    « Before you talk, listen. Before you react, think. Before you criticise, pause. Before you give up, try again. »

    « Don’t underestimate the impact you can have on someone today. Small acts of kindness go a long way. »

    « Growing churches love, and loving churches grow. » (Rick Warren)

    Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. – Winston Churchill

    Always pray to have eyes that see the best, a heart that forgives the worst, a mind that forgets the bad, and a soul that never loses faith.

    « 3 things you cannot recover in life: the WORD after it’s said, the MOMENT after it’s missed, and the TIME after it’s wasted. Choose wisely! »

    « When you stop worrying about what you can’t control, you have time to change the things you can control. »

    « A bad attitude is like a flat tyre. You can’t go anywhere until you change it. »

    « A faith is something you die for; a doctrine is something you kill for; there is all the difference in the world »  (Tony Benn)

    Strong people don’t put others down; they lift them up

    God used astonishing brilliance making you an original. Don’t spend all your energy trying to be the same
    (essai de traduction résumée: Dieu a fait de vous quelqu’un d’unique, différent des autres; n’essayez pas d’être comme les autres!)

    To avoid family rows this Christmas: give people a piece of your heart, not a piece of your mind.

    Love is more than a feeling. It is about choosing to treat people the way you would want to be treated.

    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. – Thomas Edison

    Love becomes weak if it is not strengthened by truth. Truth becomes hard if it is not softened by love.

    To be effective, speakers and communicators must focus on helping people and not impressing people!

    You can teach what you know, but you will reproduce what you are.

    Don’t think outside the box; think like there is no box.

    Direct your anger towards problems, not people.

    If you want to know where your heart is, look where your mind goes when it wanders.

    It takes around two years to learn to speak. But it takes a lifetime to learn what NOT to speak.

    A bad attitude is like a flat tyre. You can’t go anywhere until you change it.

    There is a story behind every person, a reason why they are the way they are. Don’t be quick to judge. Be kind and assume the best.

    You can’t change the past nor control the future, but you can change someone’s day by a kind word or action.

    A happy relationship is made up of two good forgivers.

    Never allow little things to spoil a friendship. Overlook if possible. Confront if necessary. Always forgive.

    Success in relationships is more than finding the right person; it is being the right person,.

    20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. Explore. Dream. Discover. – Mark Twain

    Good relationships don’t just happen. They take time, patience and people willing to face any obstacles thrown in their way.

    Joy is not the absence of trouble, but the presence of God.

    Talk about others as if they were present.

    Seek a vision from God so big that, without Him, it is impossible.

    Be generous with encouragement. It is verbal sunshine. It costs nothing, it warms hearts and enriches lives

    Negative people will always try to drag you down to their level.

    You are strong when you know your weaknesses. You are humble when you’re aware of your flaws. You are wise when you learn from your mistakes

    The strength of your faith is not measured by the absence of doubt, but by the faithfulness (fidélité) of your life in the face of doubt.

    « Humility is not a denial of ability; it is a recognition of where it comes from and for whom it must be used. »

    « Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. »

    « Three principles of prayer: 1. Keep it honest. 2. Keep it simple. 3. Keep it up. »

    « A real friend is someone who tries to pick you up when you’ve fallen, and if they can’t pick you up, they lie down right beside you. »

    « It is not what you do that determines whether your work is secular or sacred, it is why you do it. »

    « Never judge someone without knowing the whole story. You may think you understand but you don’t necessarily. »

    « Good relationships don’t just happen. They take time, patience and people willing to face any obstacles thrown in their way. »

    « It is not what you do occasionally that shapes your life, but what you do consistently. »

     » If you want your church to grow, don’t focus on growth; focus on health. Healthy sheep multiply. »
