Several of you have asked me about the quote I shared with you Sunday morning from Thomas A Kempis. Here it is. This is classic a Kempis - simultaneously simple and profound, clear and remarkably relevant, settling and yet, revolutionary.

Try this, it could be wise - stick this quote on your bathroom mirror, the dashboard of your car or make it the text for your screensaver. And this would be true wisdom - live by it.
". . . a man is unwise if he occupies himself with any things save those that further his salvation." - Thomas A Kempis, The Imitation of Christ, ch.2.
By the way, you can read a translation of The Imitation of Christ online.
