Developing a Rule of Life

All of us live by certain rhythms and routines—good or bad, deliberate or arbitrary. The current of life in the modern world doesn’t exactly accommodate spiritual rhythms of life for thriving as a disciple of Jesus. So some of us work, frustrated and stressed out, to cram “spiritual” obligations into our already bloated calendars, wondering why we aren’t experiencing freedom and life to the fullest. But centuries ago, the early church offered an answer to this conundrum, taken from the life of Jesus.

They called it a Rule of Life.
