When the glory of God is the treasure of our lives…

…we will not lay up treasures on earth, but spend them for the spread of his glory.

…we will not covet, but overflow with generosity.

…we will not crave the praise of men, but forget ourselves in praising God.

…we will not be mastered by sinful, sensual pleasures, but cut the root of its deceitful promise by the power of a superior and more satisfying promise.

…we will not nurse a wounded ego, wallow in self-pity, cherish a grudge or seek revenge in our thoughts, but will hand over our cause to God and bless those who hate us.
