Following Jesus

Here is a great quote from 18th century theologian John Wesley—

Why has Christianity done so little good, even among us? ... Among them that hear and receive the whole Christian doctrine? ... Plainly because we have forgot or, at least, not duly attended to, those solemn words of our Lord: "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me."

Oy! Talk about a challenge! I think, as a mom, that I am learning about this kind of sacrifice more than ever....
