From Wild Man to Wise Man

There is a book, written by Richard Rohr, entitled, “From Wild Man to Wise Man”. In it is this short quote that I found very encouraging:

I would say that if you only think about Jesus, “believe” Jesus and believe things about Jesus, not much new is going to happen. It is the risk of “acting” like Jesus acted that reconfigures your soul. We are converted by new circumstances much more than new ideas. Or as I like to say, we do not think ourselves into new ways of living, we live ourselves into new ways of thinking.”
