Richard J. Foster Quotes

Richard J. Foster Quote: “Prayer is – listening for the still small voice of God. Listening with the “ear of our hearts.””
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Loneliness is inner emptiness. Solitude is inner fulfillment.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Our Adversary majors in three things: noise, hurry and crowds. If he can keep us engaged in “muchness” and “manyness,” he will rest satisfied.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Superficiality is the curse of our age. The doctrine of instant satisfaction is a primary spiritual problem.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Just as worship begins in holy expectancy, it ends in holy obedience. If worship does not propel us into greater obedience, it has not been worship.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “In intellectual honesty, we should be willing to study and explore the spiritual life with all the rigor and determination we would give to any field of research.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Simplicity is freedom.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “The desperate need today is not for a greater number of intelligent people, or gifted people, but for deep people.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Of all spiritual disciplines prayer is the most central because it ushers us into perpetual communion with the Father.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Worship is our response to the overtures of love from the heart of the Father.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “It is Stoicism that demands a closed universe, not the Bible.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Giving with glad and generous hearts has a way of routing out the tough old miser within us. Even the poor need to know that they can give. Just the very act of letting go of money, or some other treasure, does something within us. It destroys the demon greed.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “As worship begins in holy expectancy, it ends in holy obedience. Holy obedience saves worship from becoming an opiate, an escape from the pressing needs of modern life.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “The discovery of God lies in the daily and the ordinary, not in the spectacular and the heroic. If we cannot find God in the routines of home and shop, then we will not find Him at all.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Today the heart of God is an open wound of love. He aches over our distance and preoccupation. He mourns that we do not draw near to Him. He grieves that we have forgotten Him. He weeps over our obsession with muchness and manyness. He longs for our presence.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Joy, not grit, is the hallmark of holy obedience. We need to be light-hearted in what we do to avoid taking ourselves too seriously. It is a cheerful revolt against self and pride.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Spiritual direction involves a process through which one person helps another person understand what God is doing and saying.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “May God give you – and me- the courage, the wisdom, the strength always to hold the kingdom of God as the number one priority of our lives. To do so is to live in simplicity.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “The spiritual discipline of simplicity is not a lost dream, but a recurrent version throughout history. It can be recaptured today. It must be.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Goals are discovered, not made.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Simplicity is the only thing that sufficiently reorients our lives so that possessions can be genuinely enjoyed without destroying us.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “In worship an increased power steals its way into the heart sanctuary, an increased compassion grows in the soul. To worship is to change.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “If the Lord is to be Lord, worship must have priority in our lives. The divine priority is worship first, service second.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “And so I urge you: carry on an ongoing conversation with God about the daily stuff of life, a little like Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. For now, do not worry about “proper” praying, just talk to God.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Stop trying to impress people with your clothes and impress them with your life.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Conformity to a sick society is to be sick.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Spiritual direction is an interpersonal relationship in which we learn how to grow, live, and love in the spiritual life.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “God has given us the Disciplines of the spiritual life as a means of receiving his grace. The Disciplines allow us to place ourselves before God so that he can transform us.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Our problem is that we assume prayer is something to master the way we master algebra or auto mechanics. But when praying, we come “underneath,” where we calmly and deliberately surrender control and become incompetent.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Inward solitude has outward manifestations. There is the freedom to be alone, not in order to be away from people but in order to hear the divine Whisper better.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Worship begins in holy expectancy, it ends in holy obedience.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Prayer is the human response to the perpetual outpouring of love by which God lays siege to every soul.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Thinking is the hardest work we can do, and among the most important.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Let’s discipline ourselves so that our words are few and full.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “He is inviting you – and me – to come home, to come home to where we belong, to come home to that for which we were created. His arms are stretched out wide to receive us. His heart is enlarged to take us in.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “If we truly love people, we will desire for them far more than it is within our power to give them, and this leads us to prayer.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Eastern meditation is an attempt to empty the mind; Christian meditation is an attempt to fill the mind. The two ideas are quite different.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Real prayer comes not from gritting our teeth but from falling in love.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Our God is not made of stone. His heart is the most sensitive and tender of all. No act goes unnoticed, no matter how insignificant or small. A cup of cold water is enough to put tears in the eyes of God. God celebrates our feeble expressions of gratitude.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “To pray is to change. This is a great grace. How good of God to provide a path whereby our lives can be taken over by love and joy and peace and patience and kindness and goodness and faithfulness and gentleness and self-control.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Grace saves us from life without God-even more it empowers us for life with God.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Owning things is an obsession in our culture. If we own it, we feel we can control it; and if we control it, we feel it will give us more pleasure. The idea is an illusion.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “If worship does not change us it has not been worship.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “When the poor farmer of India is unable to buy a gallon of gasoline to run his simple water pump because the world’s demand has priced him out of the market, who is to blame?”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Simplicity, then, is getting in touch with the divine center.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “For now, do not worry about “proper” praying, just talk to God. Share your hurts, share your sorrows, share your joys – freely and openly. God listens in compassion and love, just like we do when our children come to us.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “I said that every Discipline has its corresponding freedom. What freedom corresponds to submission? It is the ability to lay down the terrible burden of always needing to get our own way. The obsession to demand that things go the way we want them to go is one of the greatest bondages in human society today.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “But the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will buy them from you for a price: I will not offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God that cost me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “When we determine to dwell on the good and excellent things in life, we will be so full of those things that they will tend to swallow our problems.”
