Don't be religious, Be Spiritual

Do you know people who are religious, but not spiritual? By that I mean you see them at church or other religious activities, but in their life you don't see the fruits of the Spirit.

So whats the difference between religious (pertaining to religion) and spiritual

A simple definition of religion is that religion is man's attempt to reach God. Being spiritual is opening ourselves to God's influence on our whole being. Let us draw some contrasts between these two definitions.

Religion focuses on what pleases man. Being spiritual focuses on what pleases God.

Religion involves emotions and externals while spirituality involves the whole being.

Religion follows man's standards while spirituality follows God's standards.

Don't be religious, Be Spiritual
