Kyle Strobel on spiritual formation:
Many [people] are not concerned to actually understand the depths of spiritual formation, nor are they all that interested in really developing a way of life. Rather, they just want some simple answers to fix their broken lives. When push comes to shove, much that goes by the term “spirituality” is really just an extension of our own desire to have a “better,” more fulfilling life. Just as we approach health issues, our posture is about getting it fixed as easily and quickly as possible: Isn’t there just a pill I can take?
