Wives, children, prayers, school work, jobs, friendships,....that's what worldly distraction is. If you seek peace, try going without all that distraction. Do the 40 day walk in the desert bare foot.


LOL! He just described most of the
'worldly distractions' we put up
with every day. Work, spouses, kids,
school,jobs, hobbies, friends,
working out, those are the things
that take up 95% of our time.

In other words he's giving nothing up.
Doing this for real would mean a
cabin in the woods with no electric,
alone for 90 days. That will never
happen these days, people are way
too spoiled.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

I remember being on call for the power company. I came to one house, whose power had been out for a couple days. The guy comes to the door and tells me, " I don't care about the electricity, but you've got to get this tv going for the kids". The kids were devastated without the tv.
