"People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; We drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; We drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated?" - D A Carson

What is guiding you??? or are you drifting???
As I turned on my laptop on this morning, my post-it notes came up on my screen and I began rereading some of the quotes that I have placed on there. When I checked the blog later on to see if the girls had posted anything, I read the devotion that Brittany had posted earlier from Spurgeon on being separate and thought this quote went perfectly with it. :-)
