Vance Havner

this quote made me smile . . . then think . . . hope it does the same for you . . .

"Ideal environment does not guarantee perfect performance. After all, Adam was in Paradise when he fell! The New Testament was not written on vacation; much of it was penned in jail. Paul was not resting at a pleasure resort when he wrote the Epistles. The Pilgrim’s Progress was not put together in a villa on the French Riviera."

from "A Treasury of Vance Havner"

What an encouraging quote, Saija! Thank you for sharing it. I must add a Vance Havner book to my collection; everytime someone quotes him I am inspired.
