"And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption." (Ephesians 4:30)
A legendary story from Africa:
"Once upon a time the water of life,
seeking to make itself known on the face of the earth, bubbled up in an
artesian well and began to flow freely and strongly. The thirsty
thronged to the well and drank gratefully its life-giving water.
However, it was not long before decisions were made to fence the well,
charge entrance fees, and make elaborate laws as to who could come to
the well. Soon the well was the protected property of the elite and
powerful. Angry and offended by these decisions, the water
stopped flowing and began to bubble up elsewhere. Those who owned the
first well were so consumed by bureaucracy and legislative paperwork
they did not notice that the water had gone elsewhere. They
continued selling nonexistent water and few people noticed that its
life-giving power was gone. Sadly the same fate overtook the new
artesian well. Again the water of life sought another place--and this
process has been going on repeatedly throughout recorded history"
