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.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Prayer is simply saying “thank you, bless you, praise you.””
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Absolute freedom is absolute nonsense! We gain freedom in anything through commitment, discipline, and fixed habit.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “When we genuinely believe that inner transformation is God’s work and not ours, we can put to rest our passion to set others straight.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Today, O Lord, I yield myself to you. May your will be my delight today. May your way have perfect sway in me. May your love be the pattern of my living. – Richard J. Foster, Prayers from the Heart12.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Adoration is the spontaneous yearning of the heart to worship, honor, magnify, and bless God. We ask nothing but to cherish him. We seek nothing but his exaltation. We focus on nothing but his goodness.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Love, not anger, brought Jesus to the cross. Golgotha came as a result of God’s great desire to forgive, not his reluctance. Jesus knew that by his vicarious suffering he could actually absorb all the evil of humanity and so heal it, forgive it, redeem it.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Countless people pray far more than they know. Often they have such a “stained-glass” image of prayer that they fail to recognize what they are experiencing as prayer and so condemn themselves for not praying.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Prayer involves transformed passions. In prayer, real prayer, we begin to think God’s thoughts after Him: to desire the things He desires, to love the things He loves, to will the things He wills.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “We must understand the connection between inner solitude and inner silence; they are inseparable. All the masters of the interior life speak of the two in the same breath.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “It is in the everyday and the commonplace that we learn patience, acceptance, and contentment.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “If we are silent when we should speak, we are not living the Discipline of silence. If we speak when we should be silent, we again miss the mark.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “My dearest Lord, be thou a bright flame before me, a guiding star above me, a smooth path beneath me, a kindly shepherd behind me, today and for evermore. – St. Columba of Iona.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “The needed change within us is God’s work, not ours. The demand is for an inside job, and only God can work from the inside. We cannot attain or earn this righteousness of the kingdom of God: it is a grace that is given.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Silence is one of the deepest Disciplines of the Spirit, simply because it puts the stopper on all self-justificat ion.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Prayer is more than thoughts and feelings expressed in words. It is the opening of mind and heart – our whole being to God our Abba Father. It is Divine Union.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “You see, we need instruction on how to possess money without being possessed by money. We need help to learn how to own things without treasuring them. We need the discipline that will allow us to live simply while managing great wealth and power.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “In the same way that a small child cannot draw a bad picture so a child of God cannot offer a bad prayer.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Freedom in the Gospel does not mean license. It means opportunity.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “The lust for affluence in contemporary society has become psychotic; it has completely lost touch with reality.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Over-consumption is a cancer eating away at our spiritual vitals. It distances us from the great masses of broken bleeding humanity. It converts us into materialists. We become less able to ask the moral questions.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Simplicity enables us to live lives of integrity in the face of the terrible realities of our global village.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Forms and rituals do not produce worship, nor does the disuse of forms and rituals. We can use all the right techniques and methods, we can have the best possible liturgy, but we have not worshiped the Lord until Spirit touches spirit.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Pride is one of the socially acceptable sins in some corners of the evangelical culture. Its just straight-out ego gratification – how important I am; whether my name gets on the building or on the TV program or in the magazine article.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “To stand before the Holy One of eternity is to change. Resentments cannot be held with the same tenacity when we enter his gracious light.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “The inner attitude of the heart is far more crucial than the mechanics for coming into the reality of the spiritual life.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “PRAYER IS THE serious business of the Church, the first and best business it renders for the world.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Radical self-denial gives the feel of adventure. If we forsake all, we even have the chance of glorious martyrdom. But in service, we must experience the many little death of going beyond ourselves. Service banishes us to the mundane, the ordinary, the trivial.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “The message from all quarters is the same: our undisciplined consumption must end. If we continue to gobble up our resources without any regard to stewardship and to spew out our deadly wastes over land, sea, and air, we may well be drawing down the final curtain upon ourselves.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Prayer is – loving conversation with the One who has invited us into His embrace.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “We really must understand that the lust for affluence in contemporary society is psychotic. It is psychotic because it has completely lost touch with reality. We crave things we neither need nor enjoy. ‘We buy things we do not want to impress people we do not like.’... It is time to awaken to the fact that conformity to a sick society is to be sick.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Willpower will never succeed in dealing with the deeply ingrained habits of sin. Emmet.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Humility, as we all know, is one of those virtues that is never gained by seeking it. The more we pursue it the more distant it becomes. To think we have it is sure evidence that we don’t.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Make me a captive, Lord, And then I shall be free; Force me to render up my sword, And I shall conqueror be. I sink in life’s alarms When by myself I stand; Imprison me within Thine arms, And strong shall be my hand.2.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “The truth of the matter is, we all come to prayer with a tangled mass of motives – altruistic and selfish, merciful and hateful, loving and bitter.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “You will never have time for prayer; you must make time.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “God’s ownership of everything also changes the kind of question we ask in giving. Rather than, “How much of my money should I give to God?” we learn to ask, “How much of God’s money should I keep for myself?” The difference between these two questions is of monumental proportions.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Martin Luther declares that the life of the Christian should be one of daily repentance. Daily we confess, daily we repent, daily we “turn, turn, ’til we turn ’round right.” The Prayer of Tears is the primary aid to our turning.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Prayer is a little like that. With simplicity of heart we allow ourselves to be gathered up into the arms of the Father and let him sing his love song over us.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “In the spiritual life only one thing produces genuine joy and that is obedience.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “There are two ways to get enough: one is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less. – G. K. Chesterton.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Little children, love one another.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “We should all without shame enrol in the school of contemplative prayer.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “The primary purpose of prayer is to bring us into such a life of communion with the Father that, by the power of the Spirit, we are increasingly conformed to the image of the Son.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Thomas Merton writes that if we have meditated on the events of the Passion but have not meditated on Dachau and Auschwitz, our perception of God at work in present times is incomplete.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “In the context of Quaker worship, it is perfectly appropriate for any person in the congregation to speak a timely word from the Lord.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “In spiritual direction there is absolutely no domination or control.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “As Richard Foster explains, “Though silence sometimes involves the absence of speech, it always involves the act of listening. Simply to refrain from talking, without a heart listening to God, is not silence.”1.”
Richard J. Foster Quote: “Thomas Merton says, “We do not want to be beginners. But let us be convinced of the fact that we will never be anything else but beginners, all our life!”2.”
