Quotation: Serious Times

From James Emery White’s Serious Times:  Making Your Life Matter In An Urgent Day

We allow the movement of God on the surface of our spirits to become lost amid the stones the world tosses thoughtlessly into our lives.  As a result, we lose the vision God could give us of our world and our place in it.  Too quickly, and often without struggle, we trade making history with making money, substituting building a life with building a career and sacrifice living for God with living for the weekend.  We forgo significance for the sake of success and pursue the superficiality of title and degree, house and car, rank and portfolio over a life lived large.  We become saved, but not seized; delivered, but not driven.”
