Young Clergy Network Notes
Drive - the D stands for Devotion to God.
Superficiality is a curse of our society. worth pointing out this was something I heard recently from a sermon by Tom Long and commented on here
Devotion provides a why. It reminds me who I am and whose I am. The bigger the devotion the greater the drive, motivation, etc.
We care for the outside sometimes but we don't care for the inside (spiritual). This is why we commit ourselves to spending time with God.
Devotion gives us time to listen.
