The Best Rest

The Best Thing I Read Today
“Mortification from a self-strength carried on by ways of self-salvation, unto the end of a self-righteousness is the soul and substance of all false religion in the world.”

John Owen, The Mortification of Sin

The Best Thing I Heard Today
“On that weekly holiday (the Sabbath) observed by all ‘present-day civilized humanity, not only did drudgery give way to festivity, family gatherings and occasionally worship, but the machinery of self-censorship shut down, too, stilling the eternal murmur of self-reproach.

Judith Shulevitz, quoted by T. Keller
