Spiritual Progress Measured

        I mentioned once that when I first read the spiritual classic The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a Kempis many years ago, I felt uncomfortable because I was still my own man, with not much humility in me.  Now I want to be like Jesus.  I read the book again and loved it ~ a clear sign that I have grown and progressed spiritually.  The Lord has mercifully and graciously nurtured me in all these intervening years.  Cause for rejoicing.
