“So, how’s your spiritual life going?”
What’s the best way to honestly answer that question? By the state of my Daily Quiet Times with God or other growth “activities?” Did I pray and read the Bible enough lately?
That’s how the Pharisees measured spiritual growth.People can be very disciplined but remain proud and spiteful.
So how do you assess the well-being of your soul?
Ask yourself these questions: Am I growing in the fruit of the Spirit? Am I more loving, full of joy, peaceful, patient, kind, good, gentle, faithful, and self-controlling this year compared to last? This month compared to last?
Then ask the opinion of your spouse, best friend, or co-worker.
