...instead of taking faith for the rule of their conduct, men amused themselves with trivial devotions, which changed daily.
I must admit that I am a fan of change. I happen to be one of those people that likes to change things because I don't like it when things get stale. That said, I find that this passage probably describes me quite a bit - "amus[ing] myself with trivial devotions, which change daily." I have the tendency to flit from one "passion for the day" to another. I have found that for true spiritual growth, I need to commit myself to one or two practices and discipline myself to follow them. Otherwise, I just go with the direction of the spiritual wind on any given day. This is one of the reasons that I am in the process of joining a religious order, complete with an established "Rule of Life" (more on that later).
