The Value of the Word “No”


“For me, the hardest word in the English language is … NO.
I would like to be able to say yes to everyone and everything,
but obedience to Christ requires me at times to say NO.
Like the gardener pruning the vine, I must constantly trim away
unnecessary activities if new life is to spring forth.”

    Jonell, THANK you for this pictoral setting for this quote!

    Set in a vine and grapes frame reinforces the connection to John 15.2. Awesome!

    You’re the greatest!

    I found another “NO Quote” to share with you all:

    “Learn to say no; it will be of more use to you than to be able to read Latin.”
    – Charles Haddon Spurgeon

    – Jonell
