Ten Steps to a Spirit-filled Life

Live for the long haul

For three generations, the Spirit filled Daniel (of lion’s den fame) to the nth degree. Why? Because he lived simply, rejected ambition, and studied hard, even the foreign languages of his captors. Don’t go for the quick fix, the flashy experience. Live instead for the long haul. Levison writes in Fresh Air:  “Daniel did not plan and plot to climb the ladder of success by knotting himself to the coterie of handsome, hunky Israelite men whose futures were bright with promise. The lesson is clear: the Spirit-breath of God pulses in people who opt for simplicity and humility rather than ambition and acquisition, people who choose simple veggies over lavish meals and fine wines.
