Here’s a simple little prescription for character-building: carve out a little time for silence everyday.
Here in our noisy 21st century world, silence is highly underrated. Many of us can’t seem to walk from the front door to the car without a cell phone or an iPod in our ear. But, if we let all the distractions of a clamorous society separate us from God’s peace, we do ourselves a profound disservice. When I make time each day for quiet reflection with God, I’m rewarded.
