Living Life for His Glory, or mine?

“If you are indifferent to somebody, then their happiness is at the expense of your happiness. But if you are in love with somebody, their happiness is your happiness.”
Indifference to the King leads to a heartless compliance to obligation.
Admiration of the King leads to generous actions aimed at a shared joy.
That’s how it works. And nothing changes the nature of our obedience more than a fundamental change in our relationship to the King, in finding him glorious and beautiful. But if our hearts lack joyful gratitude to the King, even in the midst of our calling to live worthy of him, our hearts have veered away from treasuring him. We must pray for redirection.
