The Value of a Spiritual Discipline

The practice of a spiritual discipline makes us more sensitive to the small, gentle voice of God. The prophet Elijah did not encounter God in the mighty wind or in the earthquake or in the fire, but in the small voice (see 1 Kings 19:9-13).
Through the practice of a spiritual discipline we become attentive to that small voice and willing to respond when we hear it.
