Where the world comes to study the Bible

Nothing Stands Still

The focus of health in the soul is humility, while the root of inward corruption is pride. In the spiritual life, nothing stands still. If we are not constantly growing downward into humility, we shall be steadily swelling up and running to seed under the influence of pride.

J.I. Packer in Rediscovering Holiness, quoted in Christianity Today, November 9, 1992, p. 37
