"Humility teaches us to forgo prepackaged, cellophane wrapped, artificially ripened answers to allow faith to develop naturally. In other words, humility teaches us to be less concerned with knowing the answers and more concerned with learning the answers."
To say it quite simply, I just loved Humble Roots so much. It is exceptionally well written, entirely humbling, and utterly captivating. It is filled with compelling information that everyone needs. The metaphors that are agricultural are unique and exciting. There are so many significant passages in this book that will help add to anyone's devotionals.
"You can see the relationship between pride and stress. Pride convinces us that we are stronger and more capable than we actually are. Pride convinces us that we must do and be more than we are able. And when we try, we find ourselves feeling “thin, sort of stretched . . . like butter that has been scraped over too much bread.”11 We begin to fall apart physically, emotionally, and spiritually for the simple reason that we do not exist as we were meant to exist."
Often life is overwhelming, we have far too many responsibilities, activities, and events going on in our lives. We become tired and worn. Life is busy but overcommitting is something we need to stop doing. It is an unfortunate habit that has gone too far. This book helps us learn how to simplify and let go of our perfectionistic attitude.
This is a book that will be in the back of my mind for years to come. I really am glad that I got a chance to review it. I hope it will encourage you.
