“when the inner garden is under cultivation and God's Spirit is present, harvests are regular events. The fruits? Things like courage, hope, love, endurance, joy, and lots of peace.”
Gordon MacDonald, Ordering Your Private World

“We must learn to soundproof the heart against the intruding noises of the public world in order to hear what God has to say. ”
Gordon MacDonald, Ordering Your Private World

“We particularly need to listen to older people and children. They all have stories to tell that enrich the mind and the heart. Children simplify things, often with brutal honesty. Older people bring the perspective of their long years on issues. Suffering people also help us understand what are the truly important matters of life. There is something to learn from all people if we are only willing to sit at their feet and humble ourselves enough to ask the right questions.”
Gordon MacDonald, Ordering Your Private World
