$3 Worth of God

Business Class Reflection

“I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please, not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep, but just enough to equal a cup of warm milk or a snooze in the sunshine. I donít want enough of him to make me love a black man or pick beets with a migrant. I want ecstasy, not transformation; I want warmth of the womb, not a new birth. I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack. I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please.”

– Wilbur Rees, Leadership, Vol. 4, No. 1, I(via inward/outward)

The longer I walk this journey with Jesus here on earth …† the more I realize this is a long road to freedom from loads of “stuff” …
