A Timeless Classic One Sunday evening, D. L. Moody and friends were gathered around a fire. Some guests urged Moody to expound on a portion of Scripture. Being tired after the services of the day, he gruffly told them to ask Henry Drummond, who was also present. After some urging, Drummond finally produced a small New Testament from his hip pocket, opened it to the thirteenth chapter of 1 Corinthians and, without any notes, began to speak on the subject of love. Moody later wrote, "It seemed to me that I had never heard anything so beautiful, and I determined not to rest until I brought Henry Drummond to Northfield to deliver that address. Since then I have requested the principals of my schools to have it read before the students every year." Over the decades, this teaching has become one of the best-loved and most inspiring messages on love ever written. Other writings of Drummond in this unique collection include: The Program of Christianity The City Without a Church The Changed Life Pax Vobiscum (Peace with You) Eternal Life Through this dynamic message, we can experience the beauty of lasting love in all its fullness and learn how to bring God's peace and joy to those around us.

'You have life before you. Once only you can live it. What is the noblest object of desire, the supreme gift to covet?' THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD is perhaps the most famous exposition of Paul's message of love to the Corinthian church. Scottish writer Henry Drummond wrote this short meditation on love in 1874; widely read and quoted in his lifetime, it sold over twelve million copies and remains a much-loved devotional classic today. THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD lays out the foundation of the gospel: that love, of God and of one another, is our highest calling. This new edition, with a foreword by Norman Drummond, is for all who seek to live a life of love.
very one has asked himself the great question of antiquity as of the modern world: What is the summum bonum--the supreme good? You have life before you. Once only you can live it. What is the noblest object of desire, the supreme gift to covet? We have been accustomed to be told that the greatest thing in the religious world is Faith. That great word has been the key-note for centuries of the popular religion; and we have easily learned to look upon it as the greatest thing in the world. Well, we are wrong...
"We have been accustomed to be told that the greatest thing in the religious world is Faith. That great word has been the key-note for centuries of the popular religion; and we have easily learned to look upon it as the greatest thing in the world. Well, we are wrong. If we have been told that, we may miss the mark. In the 13th chapter of I Corinthians, Paul takes us to Christianity at its source; and there we see, 'the greatest of these is love.'" Included here are "Love: the Greatest Thing in the World," "Lessons from the Angelus," "Pax Vobiscum," "First! An Address to Boys," "The Changed Life, the Greatest Need of the World," and "Dealing with Doubt."

Excerpt:EVERY one has asked himself the great question of antiquity as of the modern world: What is the summum bonum -the supreme good? You have life before you. That is the burning question for you to face: What is the supreme object of desire-the supreme gift to covet? We have been accustomed to be told that the greatest thing in the religious world is faith. That has been the key-note for centuries of the evangelical religion; and we have learned to look upon that as the greatest thing in the world. Well; we are wrong. If we have been told that, we have been told wrong. I have taken you in the chapter which I have read tonight (I. Corinthians, xiii) to Christianity at its source; and there we have read, "The greatest of these is love." It is not an oversight. Paul was speaking of faith just a moment before. He says: "If I have all faith, so that I can remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing." It is not an oversight; and it is not prejudice. A man is apt to recommend to others his own strong point. Love was not Paul's strong point. There is a beautiful tenderness which the observing student can detect as Paul gets old- growing and ripening all through his character; but the hand that wrote "The greatest of these is love," when we meet it first, is stained with blood. Nor is Paul singular in singling out love as the summum bonum. The three masters of Christianity are agreed about it Peter says: "Above all things have fervent love among yourselves." And John goes farther: "God is love."Love Fulfils All"Love is the fulfilling of the law." Did you ever think what Paul meant by that? In those days men were working their passage to heaven by keeping the Ten Commandments, and the hundred and ten other commandments which they had manufactured out of them. Christ came and said: "I will show you a more excellent way. If you do one thing, you will do these hundred and ten things, without ever thinking about it-unconsciously. If you love, you will fulfil the whole law." And you can readily see for yourselves how that comes to be. Take any of the commandments. "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me." If a man love God, you will not have to tell him that. Love is the fulfilling of that law. "Take not His name in vain." He would never dream of taking His name in vain if he loved Him. "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy." He would be too glad to have a day to meditate upon the object of his affection.

I was staying with a party of friends in a country house during my visit to England in 1884. On Sunday evening as we sat around the fire, they asked me to read and expound some portion of Scripture. Being tired after the services of the day, I told them to ask Henry Drummond, who was one of the party. After some urging he drew a small Testament from his hip pocket, opened it at the 13th chapter of I Corinthians, and began to speak on the subject of Love. It seemed to me that I had never heard anything so beautiful, and I determined not to rest until I brought Henry Drummond to Northfield to deliver that address. Since then I have requested the principals of my schools to have it read before the students every year. The one great need in our Christian life is love, more love to God and to eacho ther. Would that we could all move into that Love chapter, and live there. This volume contains, in addition to the address on Love, some other addresses which I trust will bring help and blessing to many.

Scheiß auf positives Denken sagt Mark Manson. Die ungeschönte Perspektive ist ihm lieber. Wenn etwas scheiße ist, dann ist es das eben. Und wenn man etwas nicht kann, dann sollte man dazu stehen. Nicht jeder kann in allem außergewöhnlich sein und das ist gut so. Wenn man seine Grenzen akzeptiert, findet man die Stärke, die man braucht. Denn es gibt so viele Dinge, auf die man im Gegenzug scheißen kann. Man muss nur herausfinden, welche das sind und wie man sie sich richtig am Arsch vorbeigehen lässt. So kann man sich dann auf die eigenen Stärken und die wichtigen Dinge besinnen und hat mehr Zeit, sein Potential gänzlich auszuschöpfen. Die subtile Kunst des darauf Scheißens verbindet unterhaltsame Geschichten und schonungslosen Humor mit hilfreichen Tipps für ein entspannteres und besseres Leben. Damit man seine Energie für sinnvolleres verwendet als für Dinge, die einem egal sein können.
