Principles and Practices - August 28

Mould Your Mind To Obedience

We should allow obedience to regulate not only our exterior actions but likewise our mind and our will. Hence do not be satisfied with performing the works it prescribes, but let your thoughts and desires be also moulded according to its direction. In fact, it is in this interior sub­mission that the merit of spiritual obedience essen­tially consists.
