Comes at a Cost
Thoughts: Sometimes we hold onto a part of us that prevents us from spiritually growing. As we have engrained into our own thoughts that part of us is what makes us righteous in God's eyes and acceptable to others. When that part of us may just need to be trimmed off in order to mature in becoming the Christian He wants us to be. We must not think ourselves so righteous that we place ourselves on a thrown; expecting to be treated as a kings or queens by others in holding onto a part of us that we may only see as precious. Although it seems like loosing a precious piece of yourself, the reward in spiritual growth may well exceed this cost because sometimes spiritual maturity comes at a cost.
