True Spirituality

True spirituality manifests itself in certain dominant desires.

  1. First is the desire to be holy rather than happy.
  2. A man may be considered spiritual when he wants to see the honor of God advanced through his life.
  3. The spiritual man wants to carry his cross.
  4. Again a Christian is spiritual when he sees everything from God’s viewpoint.
  5. Another desire of the spiritual man is to die right rather than to live wrong.
  6. The desire to see others advance at his expense.
  7. The spiritual man habitually makes eternity-judgments instead of time judgments.
