Thursday: Spiritual formation and work
“A brother came to Abba Theodore and began to converse with him about things which he had never yet put into practice. So the old man said to him, ‘You have not yet found a ship nor put your cargo aboard it and before you have sailed, you have already arrived at the city. Do the work first; then you will have the speed you are making now.’”

On a scale of 1 (not great) to 10 (awesome), how hard are you working on the practice of making room in your heart for God to form you?
