Ruthless

Once John Ortberg asked author Dallas Willard how to bring new spiritual life to himself. John reported that Dallas' reply was “shocking in its simplicity.” Dallas Willard spoke quite deliberately while looking John square in the eye, “You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life, for hurry is the great enemy of spiritual life in our world today.”


Oh, God, that I could live this principle. Even just for today.

That quote is a keeper. Thanks for sharing. Actually, thanks for sharing all your wisdom, and here's to no more arguing. Cheers.

I finished the Glass Castle about a month ago and have been recommending it to everyone I know. Thanks for sharing that as well.

Dear Amanda,
Hope you are doing well. I read God has been calling you away from blogging to...hope it's going well.
