Wisdom from Ortberg
-As Christians, we know that we’re saved by grace, yet we think we’re saved by our works. Living by grace is learned behavior.
-The measure of your devotion to Christ is not measured by your devotional life. Example: A stay-at-home Mom rarely has time to do devotions, yet she is likely depending on Him daily as she develops patience and servanthood.
-Oftentimes, we feel a certain level of guilt if we don’t do or like a spiritual practice. If it helps you grow, then do it! If not, don’t beat yourself up for it.
-As you grow, you will always be you. An acorn can grow into a mighty or rotten oak…not a rosebush. Be who God created you to be.
-What do I look like when I’m flowing with the Spirit? What cuts that off? I must monitor the well being of my soul.
