Ponder this...

A believer's spiritual maturity can be measured by what it takes to steal his joy.

~Dr. John MacArthur


  1. What a great quote! I quoted him today,too!!! Such wise words.


  2. I love this, Lisa! What a great quote. I'm driving home (again) in a few minutes -- 90 minutes in the minivan listening to a "Wiggles" DVD so the kids don't go crazy. This question will be my musing for the morning, something to keep my brain busy so it doesn't absorb too much "fruit salad, yummy, yummy." THANK YOU!

    P.S. John MacArthur is actually good friends with my Dad, a fellow pastor. Sometime, I should share the story about how I completely embarrassed myself in front of him when I was about 12.

  3. Wow. Very useful to ponder there - could be a little painful to ponder there....

  4. Yes, wow. Very challenging, and more than a little convicting.

  5. OUCH!! That struck right where it needed to....
