Primal

I just finished reading Primal: A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity by Mark Batterson. It is a really challenging book. He has some really good things to say. This is a challenging quote - “In my experience, it is much easier to act like a Christian than it is to react like one. Anyone can put on an act. But your reaction reveals what is really in your heart.” I think of my life as a cup and ask, what spills out when you are bumped. In other words, how do I react when something bothers me? Jesus put it this way in Matthew 12:34-35 “For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.”
