The myth of competence

I was flipping through Bill Hull’s latest book last night – Choose the Life: Exploring a Faith that Embraces Discipleship. This quote jumped out at me:

The myth of competence is the idea that we will outgrow our weaknesses, difficult sins, fears, and disappointments. We will reach a place of spiritual competence where we have it together. It’s a myth because that time never comes; in fact our dependence on God grows as we become more like Jesus. Brokenness is living life in the light of that reality.

More to come from this book. Free resources on the book are available here. Thanks to Naomi for recommending this book.
