228 Self-satisfaction Is Man’s Biggest Problem in Pursuing the Truth
1. Do not be a passive follower of God, and do not pursue that which is curious. Through being neither cold nor hot you will forfeit yourself and delay your life. If you do not pursue while God is working, then later on it will be too late.You must rid yourself of such passivity and inactivity, and become adept at pursuing positive things and overcoming your own weaknesses, so that you may gain the truth.
2. Your shortcomings are not your biggest problem, and there’s nothing fearful about your weaknesses. Your biggest problem is your lack of desire to seek the truth. The biggest problem with all of you is a cowardly mentality whereby you are happy with things as they are, and await passively. This is your greatest obstacle, and the greatest enemy to your pursuit of the truth.
