A Restless Soul is an Inefficient Soul

Summer QuotesFor the next few weeks, I’ll be (mostly) away from my computer, phone and internet. I really need rest and some emotional refreshment.

So I’m scheduling a number of quotes that have impacted me in different ways. I hope they bless you.

Here’s the first one and I think it’s quite timely:

“Activists rarely like to sit down. There’s always one more report to write, one more blog post, one more conversation, one more educational opportunity. And yet a restless soul is an inefficient soul. Jesus Christ, the only perfect person who ever lived, took time to daily cultivate his inner life. He rested. He prayed. He relaxed. And you are not better than Jesus.” (Daniel Darling)
