Inspiring Quotes From an Inspirational Dad – Reviewed by David P. Craig
Anyone who has ever watched Bear Grylls’ adventures on “Man vs. Wild” can’t help but amazed at his spirit of adventure, ingenuity, courage, wisdom, and passion for life. In this little book Bear Grylls gives his favorite Bible verses, life quotes, and wisdom and dedicates this collection to his boys. It is a wonderful compilation for any Father to seek to implement in his own life and emulate for the lives of his children. Grylls emphasizes a love for Jesus Christ, a love for others, and maximizing your time in life by serving others. Let me share some of my favorite quotes from the book:
“Aim to live a wild, generous, full, exciting life–blessing those around you and seeing the good in all.”
“Have a few close friends who you see often–their friendship matters more than having many shallow acquaintances.”
“Choose your job carefully–do work that excites you. It is where you will spend so much of your time.”
“Cheerfulness in adversity is a key character trait in the game of life.”
“Moments of doubt are part of life. Accept them and remember that Jesus Himself said, ‘My power is made perfect in weakness’ (2 Corinthians 12:9).”
“Understand that failure is an essential stepping-stone on the road to success.”
“Give more than you take, especially with friends and family. See the best in people–as Christ does with you.”
“Spend more time with your family and less at work–no one on their deathbed says they wish thye had spent more time in the office!”
“No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care.”
“You have two ears and one mouth–use them in proportion: Listen twice as much as you speak!
“But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth” (Deuteronomy 8:18).
Thank God for your many blessings; then go out there and blossom. It is okay to succeed.”
I recommend this little book – especially for dads to share with their children. It would make an excellent gift for Father’s day, and a great gift for father’s to give to their sons when they become dads someday.
