Godliness

I’m really enjoying Donald Miller’s book, Prayer and the Art of Volkswagon Maintenance. Here’s a good snippet.

“When I begin by asking what godliness looks like, I have the wrong end in mind. It is the process that is godliness, not so much the end result. A godly man will involve himself in the process of being godly. For godliness is not so much a place we are going as it is the going itself.”

What a relief. While it seems impossible to be godly, it does not seem impossible to be in the process of being godly. That’s good news for me!

But then again, if cleanliness is godliness, then maybe I’m not doing so bad. Just kidding, my house is a mess today!
