A Pall of Acrid Smoke

“The world’s idea that everyone, from childhood up, should be able at all times to succeed in measurable ways, and that it is a great disgrace not to, hangs over the Christian community like a pall of acrid smoke.”

–J.I. Packer, A Passion for Faithfulness: Wisdom From the Book of Nehemiah, p. 206.
