"The most dangerous thing you can do is to take any one impulse of your own nature and set it up as the thing you ought to follow at all costs.  There is not one of them which will not make us into devils if we set it up as an absolute guide."  Mere Christianity

Making anything in myself ultimate--my instincts, my needs, my desires, my gifts, my reason--will inevitably lead to destruction.  The only safe course is to put Christ first.  I must obey the Law, the Word, which is outside of myself--God's Law, God's Word.  And I can only do that by God's power.

"Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33

If I put God and his kingdom purposes first, the rest of life will take care of itself, all the puzzle pieces will fall into place.  Christ in me is my only hope of glory.

"Grant, O our God, that we may know Thee, love Thee, and rejoice in Thee; and if in this life we cannot do these things fully, grant that we may at least progress in them from day to day, for Christ's sake.  Amen." St. Anselm (1033-1109)
