Nee on Discipleship

even amongst Christians, there can be found much of that spirit that
wants to give as little as possible to the Lord, and yet to get as much
as possible from Him. The prevailing thought today is of being used, as
though that were the one thing that mattered. That my little rubber
band should be stretched to the very limit seems all important. But
this is not the Lord’s mind. The Lord wants us to be used, yes; but
what He is after is that we pour all we have, ourselves, to Him, and if
that be all, that is enough."

–Watchman Nee
