Place Spiritual Growth Ahead

We have learned that the satisfaction of instincts cannot be the sole end and aim of our lives. If we place instincts first, we have got the cart before the horse; we shall be pulled back into disillusionment.

But when we are willing to place spiritual growth first -- then and only then do we have a real chance.

Thought to Ponder . . .

Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional, growing spiritually is up to you.
