Are You Playing the Long Game?
Are you playing the long game? Or are you going for a quick fix?
Our flesh longs for instantaneous and on demand, but our soul longs for a real meal of depth and abundance.
Here the story about one of Brian's friends whose committed long term to digging deeply in the Psalms. He reads one psalm each day for a week. This includes reading the psalm each day and then reading a different commentary on it daily. He is in year 4 which means he just began his second run through the Psalter.
Imagine the person you'll become by doing a similar deep dive into some practice in your own life.
To what formative practices have you committed deeply?
