committed to the right thing

"When we commit ourselves to the pursuit of holiness, we need to ensure that our commitment is actually to God, not simply to a holy lifestyle or a set of moral values. The people of my parent's generation were generally honest, chaste, sober and thrifty. They were commuted to those values, but they were not necessarily committed to God. Many of them were outstanding moralist and even church people, but they were not committed to God. They were committed to their values, not to God."
Jerry Bridges, the Discipline of Grace
