The Throne of My Heart

Am I willing to give up all—or even much—of what I cherish? Or more basically, can I relegate all the things and people whom I consider important in my life to second place, so that God alone occupies the throne of my heart. Before any progress is made along the spiritual path, it seems essential that we consider exactly where our affections lie.

You can’t be converted without becoming naked and seeing clearly all your faults and weaknesses. Self-absorption makes me forget the reality of God. Humility frees me from absorption in myself. Cling to yourself and you will lose yourself. Communion with God is life; separation from God is death.
