flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the
things of the Spirit.  To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the
mind on the Spirit is life and peace."  ~Romans 8:5-6

All of us have our own battle to win, the battle between the material view
of life and the spiritual view.  Something must guide our lives. Will it be
wealth, pride, selfishness, greed or will it be faith, honesty, purity,

battle.  When we win the victory, we can believe that God will rejoice with

not be a loser in the battle for righteousness.
