Billy Graham has been one of the most influential spiritual voices across the globe for decades.

Oh my, how the world has changed!

On Money

“There is nothing wrong with men possessing riches. The wrong comes when riches possess men.”

On Courage

“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spine of others are often stiffened.”

On Hardship

“Mountaintops are for views and inspiration, but fruit is grown in the valleys.”

On Comfort

“Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.”

On Judging Others

“It is the Holy Spirit’s job to convict, God’s job to judge and my job to love.”

On Honesty

“Don’t ever hesitate to take to [God] whatever is on your heart. He already knows it anyway, but He doesn’t want you to bear its pain or celebrate its joy alone.”

On Jesus

“Many people are willing to have Jesus as part of their lives—as long as it doesn’t cost them anything. They may even profess faith in Jesus and join a church. But Jesus to them is almost like an insurance policy—something they obtain and then forget about until they die. What keeps you from being His disciple?”

 On God’s Love

“Sin is the second most powerful force in the universe, for it sent Jesus to the cross. Only one force is greater—the love of God.”

On Hope

“I’ve read the last page of the Bible. It’s all going to turn out all right.”
