"Worry implies that we don't quite trust that God is big enough, powerful enough, or loving enough to take are of what's happening in our lives. Stress says that the things we are involved in are important enough to merit our impatience, our lack of grace toward others, or our tight grip of control. Basically, these two behaviors communicate that it's okay to sin and not trust God because the stuff in my life is somehow exceptional. Both worry and stress reek of arrogance." (pg 42)
"While God doesn't need us but still wants us, we desperately need God but don't really want Him most of the time" - pg 61.
Very good book, for a Southern California, mainstream mega-church kind of pastor. Attributes of God and the Gospel presented clearly in the opening chapters.
