The Best Purpose Driven Life quotes by Rick Warren

“Resentment always hurts you more than it does the person you resent. While your offender has probably forgotten the offense and gone on with life, you continue to stew in your pain, perpetuating the past. Listen: those who hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment. Your past is past! Nothing will change it. You are only hurting yourself with your bitterness. For your own sake, learn from it, and then let it go.”

Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life

“If not to God, you will surrender to the opinions or expectations of others, to money, to resentment, to fear, or to your own pride, lusts, or ego. You were designed to worship God and if you fail to worship Him, you will create other things (idols) to give your life to. You are free to choose, what you surrender to but you are not free from the consequence of that choice.”

Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life

“Why is this happening to me? Why am I having such a difficult time? One answer is that life is supposed to be difficult! It’s what enables us to grow. Remember, earth is not heaven!”

Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life

“We’re not completely happy here because we’re not supposed to be! Earth is not our final home; we were created for something much better.”

Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life

“Your value is not determined by your valuables, and God says the most valuable things in life are not things!”

Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life

“Life minus love equals zero.”

Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life

    Here are two others that are worth considering:

    “If you are a member of a small group or class, I urge you to make a group covenant that includes the nine characteristics of biblical fellowship: We will share our true feelings (authenticity), forgive each other (mercy), speak the truth in love (honesty), admit our weaknesses (humility), respect our differences (courtesy), not gossip (confidentiality), and make group a priority (frequency).”

    Rick Warren, Purpose Driven Life

    “Without God, life has no purpose, and without purpose, life has no meaning. Without meaning, life has no significance or hope.”

    Rick Warren, Purpose Driven Life
