The less we seek our own glory...

The true disciple does not serve himself or the "public", but his Lord, in simplicity and generosity...Our fitness will always be more effective the less we seek our own glory and the more we are aware that the reward of the righteous is God Himself, to be united to Him, here, on a journey of faith, and at the end of life, in the peace of coming face to face with Him forever (cf. 1 Cor 13:1).
