The Center of Our Life

crossinmexicosmallHere’s a good thought from that great Christian thinker Thomas A Kempis.  He lived over 500 years ago but his book The Imitation of Christ is still a best seller.  The following words are from the paraphrase by William C. Creasy.

“Look upon the whole world as nothing without God, and prefer God to anything else… If you keep God at the center of your life, you will easily overcome all other things… All that must be radically overcome is rooted in this vice of making yourself the center of your own world.” (pp. 149-150)
