Phileo

Kathy has a wonderfully honest post about blogs and ego gratification. Just where is the line between ego gratification and affirmation that all humans need? We should seek our affirmation from God, or so I tell myself, while often doing the opposite. What percentage (to be coldly analytical) of our support should come from God, spouse, friends, etc..?

This was the question that had occurred to me while pondering Kathy's request for a friendly email. And then came this thought-provoking post, which provides nice in-roads towards the answer. Tolle, lege! Another nice thing about St. Blog's is that we can cross-pollinate our reading lists. I'd never read "The Four Loves" and now I'm tempted to.
