What Are Spiritual Disciplines Doing For You?

A house plant grows toward its light source. Left alone, it will bend toward the light rather than growing straight and tall. Not having volition of its own, it will continue on its disabling path. However, a kindly hand turning it regularly, will assure light to all sides so that it may grow nicely.

We, however, need to bring together self-awareness and self-discipline to achieve that straight, strong spiritual growth that we need.

These together prevent us from fossilizing as merely creed-spouting organisms. Rather, we are infused with God bringing a new attitude to our lives.

We can put anger, greed, hate, fear behind us while basking in the light of love.
