Quote of the Day


And for once, it’s an excellent quote!

Rather than delivering a fiery policy speech Friday at the Young America’s Foundation’s National Conservative Student Conference, Timothy Goeglein recalled how pride led to his disgraceful resignation from the President George W. Bush administration. “If anyone here is suffering from pride, you and I were meant to meet today,” Goeglein told attendees.

Goeglein served as special assistant to President Bush and deputy director of the White House Office of Public Liaison from 2001 to 2008. In that position, he was the main liaison between the White House and social conservative organizations. He resigned from that position after it was discovered that he had plagiarized columns he wrote for his hometown newspaper in Fort Wayne, Ind.

“Learn from my example,” Goeglein told the young conservative activists in attendance….”A prideful person is not satisfied with who they are.” Proverbs 16:18 is correct, Goeglein said: “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall”. “For those of you who are guilty of pride,” he warned, “you will face the same unless you change. I say this out of love, not indictment.”

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
