Too often without struggle, we trade…

Too quickly, and too often without struggle, we trade making history with making money, substitute building a life with building a career and sacrifice living for God with living for the weekend. We forgo significance for the sake of success and pursue the superficiality of title and degree, house and car, rank and portfolio over a life lived large. We become saved, but not seized; delivered, but not driven.

James Emery White, from Serious Times, p. 12
