Quotemeal: Sep. 1st, 2019

Sunday, September 1, 2019

"[John the Baptist said] 'He must increase, but I must decrease.' ... No driven person could ever say what John said, because driven people have to keep gaining more and more attention, more and more power, more and more material assets. The seductions of the public life would have led to a competitive posture, but the original call to commitment from within spoke louder."
— Gordon McDonald
