Nov 14, 2022: Self, Self, Self

Robert E. Webber

When we . . . upon hearing the story desire to participate in God, we are no longer preoccupied with self, the welfare of self, the indulgence of self, and the preservation of self. Instead the focus is on God’s purposes for our life and the life of the world. . . . To worship God through participation means to live intentionally, choosing to live God’s way in our personal life, in all of our relationships within the family, in the institutions of society, and in our vocations.

-Robert Webber, The Divine Embrace: Recovering the Passionate Spiritual Life (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 2006), 21.
