· Jesus said to everyone, “All who want to come after me must say no to themselves, take up their cross daily, and follow me.” —Luke 9:23


In the spiritual life, discipline means to create that space in which something can happen that we hadn’t planned or counted on. Discipline helps us to follow the voice of the Spirit, who wants to lead us to new places, new people, and new forms of service.—Henri J.M. Nouwen with John S. Mogabgab, Editor, A Spirituality of Living (The Henri Nouwen Legacy Trust, published in partnership with Upper Room Books, 2011)

· How much space do you create in your daily life to spend time with God?

· How much space do you create in your daily life to serve others by spending time with them?
