Cultivate a Love for Him

"The pious [that is, godly] mind . . . restrains itself from sinning, not out of dread of punishment alone; but, because it loves and reveres God as Father, it worships and adores Him as Lord. Even if there were no hell, it will still shudder at offending Him alone."

- John Calvin, / Institutes 1.3.2 /
