unis finis ultimus

there is only
one ultimate goal.

the goal is not
to glorify Him forever
to bring Him praise
to obey His commands
to follow His ways
to teach His precepts
to instruct His people
to be holy as He is holy
or even
(especially)
to not sin.

the goal is not
to love Him.

and the goal is not
to love others.

nor is the goal
to love your self.

these
are all
results.

the only goal is
to be radically
and unreservedly
loved by God.

the rest will follow.
