Quote of the Week

"More than other idols, personal success and achievement lead to a sense that we ourselves are god, that our security and value rest in our own wisdom, strength and performance. To be the very best at what you do, to be at the top of the heap, means no one is like you. You are supreme"

Timothy Keller, Counterfeit Gods, p.75

i certainly agree with Tim Keller on this one. my flesh so desires to be supreme at something. my brain tells me i have no shot at being supreme at anything - not that it keeps me from trying. my help is colossians 3:1-4.
