When we practice the spiritual disciplines when nobody is looking – then live our life in public – we don’t have to hang our head or beat our own drum, our actions will express our heart…the part of us that God looks at when God is choosing from our number the ones that are God’s choice to lead, God’s choice to work, God’s choice to speak, God’s choice to example what it means to live a Christian life…

We become capable choices when we’ve been in the habit of growing through practice, when we’ve done the study part, the prayerful part, when we’ve practiced the spiritual disciplines in private, maybe even in secret…and now our private practice bleeds over into our public life…

Peace
