“No one ever says, “I have decided to forsake the glories of the kingdom of God to pursuit the self-oriented glories of my own kingdom.” Instead, because of the blindness of sin and the fact that we exist in little moments, so much of our kingdom building takes place without conscious intentionality. And because we have defined biblical morality as the keeping of a set of rules, rather than the ownership of our hearts by the Lord, much of the conflict of kingdoms goes unnoticed. As a result, our lives end up being shaped by a confusing mix of big kingdom rules (the Kingdom of God) and little kingdom rules (the kingdom of self).Paul David Tripp, A Quest for More: Living for something bigger than you.
