“A single instance of proper behavior is more important that a hundred miracles and signs.” Some ancient wisdom from a rabbi. We live at a time when people have come to expect quick results. The need for instant gratification is at an all time high. That is not the way spiritual discipline works. Practicing the disciplines of prayer, serving others, worship, meditation, or fasting will not give us a “spiritual high.” But they will strengthen and deepen our relationship with God. Your hold the key to your own spiritual development by what you do (or don’t do.)
PS. Some of you know about Nextdoor.com. A woman named Mary Withrow is forming a “Helping Hands” group on the Edgewood area Nextdoor. Check it out. Good way for us to be a community church.
