Paradox

“People profoundly want to be made new, to be clothed in Christ, to be born again. And they profoundly want to cling to everything old—the world, themselves.

We desperately and passionately desire two opposite and mutually exclusive things: to change and to stay the same.”

I like this quote from Sara Miles' book Jesus Freak. I haven't read it yet, but loved her first book Take this Bread.

I did read the quotation somewhere and found it so resonated that I wrote it down in my journal. I offer it to you dear readers for your contemplation. What do you think? Is it true for you, or not?
