So, I've been wanting to write about this for a while.
Jim Elliot was a missionary who was killed on the missions field by the very people he was ministering to. His wife was Elizabeth Elliot, she's written a lot of books now. You might also know their story from the movie The End of the Spear. Anyways, Jim said a lot of wise things while he was alive, most of which are recorded and preserved through his journals and the book his wife wrote about him.
I first read this quote several years ago while living in Texas, but it's been sticking in my head recently. It's a good quote. Let me know what you think.
"...let not our longing slay the appetite of our living..." - Jim Elliot
