I collected these quotes from all over the world for many years and have added my own as well.
I want to share them with all who loves wisdom as I do. These quotes from the Master's table must be distributed free to all.

I read a very good story that is from the wisdom of our Lord Jesus and want to share the point of it with all here. "Unless you know the whole picture, how can you judge? If you read only one page of a book how can you judge the whole book? If you read only one word of a phrase how can we understand the entire phrase? The fact is that we only have a fragment of it all as we go through life. Life's mishaps and troubles are only a page out of a grand book so we must be slow about drawing conclusions. We must learn to reserve judgment on life's storms and about people until we know the whole story." Jesus stated… "Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself." (Matthew 6:34)

I do love these sayings because I do believe that Wisdom is the Eye into the Mind of God.
Webmaster of the Master's Table ~ Timothy M. Youngblood

If we continue to teach according to the facts recorded in the Hebrew/Aramaic bible,
and if we do a responsibly good job of it then one day we will become as criminals ~
Timothy M. Youngblood

Consider this:
Those that Judge with self-righteous condemning judgment very well may find themselves stating this one day.
“I have become what I despise.” ~ Timothy M. Youngblood
Remember it is recorded that Jesus stated "Judge not, that you be not judged for with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”

We can work on keeping our body and mind clean however Jesus alone keeps believers spirit clean and make salvation sure. ~ Timothy M. Youngblood

“There is beauty in truth, even if it's painful. Those who lie, twist life so that it looks tasty to the lazy, brilliant to the ignorant, and powerful to the weak.
But lies only strengthen our defects. They don't teach anything, help anything, fix anything or cure anything.
Nor do they develop one's character, one's mind, one's heart or one's soul.” ~José N. Harris

When one grasps the human condition one must ask why would God even bother?
Then you realize how great God’s Love, Mercy, and Grace really is! ~ Timothy M. Youngblood

When a person dies their world ceases to exist as well.

When all mankind faces the wrath of God many hearts will stop for fear and
When mankind faces God’s destruction, it assures a different meaning and a concept never contemplated.
Yes the demise of ALL realities is a concept that is beyond our understanding.

At that time all mankind’s Grand designs and plans will be exposed for what they are and
the reality of our coming Creator’s designs and plans will be revealed and become the new reality.
~ Timothy M. Youngblood
