1. Don't communicate well; hearing but not listening.
2. Loved earned by performances.

5. Denial that there are difficulties.

"Thou would’st take much Pains to save thy Body: Take some, prithee, to save thy Soul"

--William Penn, Some Fruits of Solitude, 1693
God always gives His best to those
who leave the choice with Him.
