I’m culling my library down and giving a lot of books away, selling others and stockpiling books to share and gift to others who might be blessed by them as much as I have. Along the way, I am rereading some classics one of which is this one by John Piper.
“If we don’t feel strong desires for the manifestation of the glory of God, it is not because we have drunk deeply and are satisfied. It is because we have nibbled so long at the table of the world. Our soul is stuffed with small things, and there is no room for the great.”
A Hunger for God
“Oh God, train my heart to feast on You and Your word. Wean me from nibbling at the table of the world that I might truly taste and see that You are all I need (Cf. Psalm 34:8). You are good, better than everything the world can offer. Help me to train my heart to live what I believe. Help me to make room for great thoughts of You in my soul. For your glory, for my joy for the joy of everyone I know and in the name of Jesus Christ, I ask it. Amen.”
