“We are getting away with so much. We assume the success of our efforts and the increase of our welath is indication that God is pleased. Without the prophetic voice, we deceive ourselves as Israel did – they believed themselves to be closest to God when they were the farthest from Him. Only through the prophetic voice can we keep ourselves from falling into the same trap.”
-from p.46-47 of “A Prophet’s Heart” by Charles Brown.
