"Mature Christians can settle into a dull, passionless life, guided by routine and duty. We fit in, hang on, and drift along. The years pass like lazy clouds on a summer afternoon. Either we have no passions, or we have a misdirected passion for possessions, prestige, pleasure and power. Jesus bid us to nurture the right passion, the hunger for righteousness, and to satisfy it." --Daniel Doriani The Sermon on the Mount, pp28-29.
