Health in the Soul

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

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.
