"Something I’ve learned about myself, and human nature in general, is that the better angels of our nature have corresponding demons. We have a dark side. I don’t think our virtues eliminate our faults. Our flesh, although put to death, still struggles for prominence. Our task is to notice this but not submit to it. We allow the good fruit of our lives to grow in the crappy culture of our darker selves."

I'm really thinking about this.

Like when it comes to the gospel, I tend to live, speak and do the more "grace" aspect of things rather than the "law" part. Not because I have no moral standards or because I want to be lawless, but I struggle with judgement of myself and of others. My thoughts can learn towards being legalistic.
