It's all about... Who....

March 26 — The great weakness of North American spirituality is that it is all about us: fulfilling our potential, getting in on the blessings of God, expanding our influence, finding our gifts, getting a handle on principles by which we can get an edge over the competition. And the more there is of us, the less there is of God.

Quotations for March are excerpts selected from Eugene Peterson’s letters to a friend collected in The Wisdom of Each Other: A Conversation Between Spiritual Friends (Zondervan, 1998)
