Billy Graham Quote of the Day

This is a great quote and one I think many of us can relate to… it’s a good one to print out and file away somewhere or to put up on your office wall to remind you of what the important issues really are – God, family, life.

Here is the specific quote:

One of the questions asked of Graham was “If you could, would you go back and do anything differently?” This was his response:

Yes, of course. I’d spend more time at home with my family, and I’d study more and preach less. I wouldn’t have taken so many speaking engagements, including some of the things I did over the years that I probably didn’t really need to do—weddings and funerals and building dedications, things like that. Whenever I counsel someone who feels called to be an evangelist, I always urge them to guard their time and not feel like they have to do everything.

I also would have steered clear of politics. I’m grateful for the opportunities God gave me to minister to people in high places; people in power have spiritual and personal needs like everyone else, and often they have no one to talk to. But looking back I know I sometimes crossed the line, and I wouldn’t do that now.
