Currently I am going through Spiritual Mothering by Susan Hunt. Actually 110 women from my church are going through it together!
Last week the reading was powerful and I just wanted to share this quote:
"A four-letter word causes us enormous problems: self. Our self-inclination will send us reeling unless we have settled that core issue: what is our life-purpose? Once God's glory is our purpose, then we have a center point to which we can relate each decision and each situation." (pg 32)
When we have God's glory as our number one goal in life we never ask: what's in it for me? Instead we ask: how can I glorify God through this?
Also that center point keeps our emotions in line and in check! Something all of us could use, right?!?
