I recently stumbled upon an interesting statement by J. C. Ryle, an Anglican bishop of the 19th century. He asserts, "My chief desire in all my writings, is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him beautiful and glorious in the eyes of men; and to promote the increase of repentance, faith, and holiness upon the earth." Wow! It took my breath away! May that be the chief desire, not just of our 'writings,' but of the whole of life.
