'GROW IN VIRTUE'

"However when He the Spirit of truth is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself: but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come" - John 16:13
.
Are you growing in virtue? 
.
Merriam Webster dictionary defined virtue as conformity to a standard of right. Does your life conform to what is right? Whose definition of right do you conform to - the world or His word?
.
To conform to God's standard of what is right, you need the Holy Spirit because He is the only one that can and will guide you into all truth based on the knowledge of God's word that you have acquired.
.
You cannot grow in the knowledge of what ia right if what determines rightness to you is the world's philosophy.
.
Moreover, God has always been giving man instructions to better his life but his understanding of what ia right would determine if he will obey or disobey God. If you believe what God say to be right, you'll enjoy the benefits and if you follow what the society said to be right, you'll suffer the consequences.
.
There's God's right way of choosing who to marry, having a successful marriage, knowing the business to venture into and doing things that would make your life better.
.
However, the only way to conform your life to a standard of right is to live according to the word God (study to show yourself approved to God) and daily renew your mind with His word so that you won't be conformed to this world system (Rom. 12:2).
