"Reject the worldly lie that says life lies always up ahead
Let power go before control becomes a crust around your soul
Escape the hunger to possess and soul diminishing success
This world is full of narrow lives, I pray by grace your smile survives."

Michael Card

"Man is so much the prey of the powers, so closely associated with their work, enjoys himself so thoroughly to their profit, desires so much all that they offer, conceives his life to such a degree separated from God, that every approach of God, every positive work of God, appears to him as an unacceptable disturbance and finally an attack against him. When God comes to deliver him, he does not at all perceive his liberation; he protests against the breaking of those marvelous objects, which are his chains or the doors of his prison: the adored chains. This is clearly the situation of Man."
Jacques Ellul
