Time for a Great Quote! (Piper on outside-ourselves-joy)

07 Apr

“The really wonderful moments of joy in this world are not the Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 6.24.02 AMmoments of self-satisfaction, but self-forgetfulness. Standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon and contemplating your own greatness is pathological. At such moments we are made for a magnificent joy that comes from outside ourselves.”
John Piper, Don’t Waste Your Life
