Something about this quote by Mike Cope about the new addition of a regular sabbatical to his ministry really resonated with me for some reason.
“For 25 years I’ve written, preached, taught, edited, traveled, and blogged. Now I’m going to be silent and listen. I’m going to seek God with all my heart.” – Mike Cope at his blog Preacher Mike.
Coming from someone who has so many good things to say I thought it really said a lot about the importance of rest and listening. Jesus was the ultimate person who had good things to say and even he saw the need for a break from the crowds from time to time. I think this statement says something about Mike Cope’s humility to recognize his need for seeking God and being in tune with what God wants him to hear.
Thanks for such a refreshing statement!
