At times, I pray that my life will more and more conform to the image and likeness of Christ. Honestly, the first thing honestly that comes to mind is not exactly the image of the crucified Christ. A thinker invited his audience to evaluate if it was not true that two things moved them in almost all of their actions. They were (1) seeking pleasure and well-being or (2) avoiding pain....
