'The goal of the disciplined life is love: to more and more live in and live out the two greatest commandments. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, strength, mind and soul, and love your neighbour as yourself.
The touchstone of whether you're rightly engaged with any discipline is to ask, "Is my love getting stronger, deeper, richer?" Something is wrong if you find that any discipline or habit you practise is making you arrogant, self-righteous, contemptuous, judgemental.'
It is easy to lose sight of the real goals of growing as a Christian: of becoming more like Christ, of living for God, of obeying the two greatest commandments to love God and others.
I think this is a great reminder to check our heart and motives, to aim for greater love, and to avoid pride.
