Lay Aside Every Distraction

“We must cast away everything which hinders us upon our road towards heaven
– the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life; the love of riches, pleasures and honors, the spirit of lukewarmness and carelessness and indifference about the things of God – all must be rooted out and forsaken if we are anxious for the prize. We must mortify the deeds of the body, we must crucify our affections for this world.”
~ J.C. Ryle
