"I want to simplify your lives. When others are telling you to read more, I want to tell you to read less; when others are telling you to do more, I want to tell you to do less. The world does not need more of you; it needs more of God. Your friends do not need more of you; they need more of God. And you don't need more of you; you need more of God."
Eugene Peterson, Subversive Spirituality, page 30.
I just really liked this quote. As I look at it, though, it becomes a very good excuse for not blogging much recently -- Eugene Peterson tells me a) that I need to do less and b) that you all need more of God and not mroe of me!
