in my thinking. .
About things—not what I can get, but how simply I can live.
About leisure—not escape from something, but entering into something.
About food—not what I have to give up, but what is good for my health.
About tithe—not what I lose, but what God's Kingdom gains.
About vacation—not doing whatever I want, but changing my pace.
About time—not immediate and urgent, but restful and trusting.
About God—not far away, but up close; not condemning, but loving; not emotionally distant, but relational.
About salvation—not my doing, but His.
About being loved—not getting hugs, but giving them.
About church—not what I get out of it, but what I put into it.
About life—not down here and short, but up there and eternal.
