5+ Church Signs With Wise Words To Live By

Churches in this day and age have become renowned for their clever signs. There are a lot out there that have shown a flare for humor with their signs, but fewer that have actually figured out how to show off their wisdom.

But the wise words stick out so much better. The churches that have reduced fundamental truths to sayings small enough to fit on a lawn sign deserve a shout out, don't you think? These are words to live by!

1. "Listen and silent are spelled with the same letters."

You can't hear what others are saying when you're talking! Mind you, you can also spell "tinsel" with the same letters.

2. Love should not have exceptions.

It's pretty basic, but it's something we all need to remind ourselves about sometimes. It's not our place to judge others, no matter who we are! Unless, of course, we're a judge.

3. Truer words have never been spoken.

Love should always be valued over violence.

Can't really argue with that logic.

5. Controversial, but important all the same.

This one actually attracted quite a bit of negative attention from the people of St.Petersburg, Florida.

Bless this church for telling it like it is.

10. This is fact, not opinion

Reddit | Mpromptu

If we are going to value life, it has to be all life.

11. Same church, different message

When you have a platform, it makes sense to use it to spread messages that you find important.

12. Eclipse

This sign was posted the morning of the solar eclipse... And I'm not saying they were right, but they were right.

13. "When gratitude becomes your default setting, life changes."

Twitter | @nancyschwartz17

Why not make every day Thanksgiving Day? Having a positive and grateful outlook can turn a bad mood into a good one. You get from the world what you put into it.

14. "Be the person your dog thinks you are."

Your dog thinks you're pretty awesome, and they're always happy to see you — so take that to heart. Also, dog and god are spelled with the same letters!

15. "If you are more fortunate than others, build a longer table, not a taller fence."

Generosity is the spirit! Helping others succeed is so much more rewarding than trying to bogart all the success for yourself. We all get by with a little help from our friends.
