Quotemeal: Nov. 29th, 2023

Wednesday, November 29, 2023

"Those of us who are most familiar with the Spirit's promises are in the greatest danger. ... familiarity may not breed contempt, but it takes the edge off awe ... promises that drop the jaws or widen the eyes of newcomers but provoke no more than a raised eyebrow in the old-timers who have ceased to dream."
— Jim McGuiggan
