How to Be Spiritually Minded


Enjoyed reading this by John Piper today:

The question will not be,
“Is he quick-witted and fast-talking and clever?”

The question will be:

“Does he pray a lot?
Does he know his holy Book, much of it by heart?
Is he self-denying and focused on God?


Is he powerful in his weakness?”
