DEVOTION: “Our temptation is to look eagerly for the minimum that will be accepted. We are in fact very like honest but reluctant taxpayers. We approve of an income tax in principle. We make our returns truthfully. But we dread a rise in the tax. We are very careful to pay no more than is necessary. And we hope—we very ardently hope—that after we have paid it there will still be enough left to live on.”(Pg 98)
To continue yesterday’s thought….
Another amazing analogy here. So deeply convicting. If you’re not feeling it….read it again and think about you’re own life.
Your own prayer life.
We are afraid that more than the minimum will be required.
Even as I write this my palms are sweating. I know there’s more. I know there’s more to be done and more to be sacrificed and surrendered. Yet….my hesitation continues.
Is this hitting you at all?
Let me know in the comments how these last two days have affected your thought process on prayer. On how you pray and what you pray for…
There’s more to it than just a few idle prayers thrown up to heaven..
God, today we pray for courage and faith. Today we pray for more.
There was a sacrifice made that demands our attention.
