Fasting reminds us that we are sustained by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God (Matt. 4:4). Food does not sustain us; God sustains us.More Richard Foster quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Freedom in the Gospel does not mean license. It means opportunity.More Richard Foster quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In worship an increased power steals its way into the heart sanctuary, an increased compassion grows in the soul. To worship is to change.More Richard Foster quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nothing disciplines the inordinate desires of the flesh like service, and nothing transforms the desires of the flesh like serving in hiddenness. The flesh whines against service but screams against hidden service. It strains and pulls for honour and recognition. It will devise subtle, religiously acceptable means to call attention to the service rendered. If we stoutly refuse to give in to this lust of the flesh, we crucify it. Every time we crucify the flesh, we crucify our pride and arrogance.More Richard Foster quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The fruit of solitude is increased sensitivity and compassion for others. There comes a new freedom to be with people. There is new attentiveness to their needs, new responsiveness to their hurts. Thomas Merton observes, 'It is in deep solitude that I find the gentleness with which I can truly love my brothers. The more solitary I am the more affection I have for them.... Solitude and silence teach me to love my brothers for what they are, not for what they say.More Richard Foster quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
