Save me O Lord, for the godly one has ceased,
and the truths have diminished from the children of men.
Every one has spoken vanities to his friend.
Deceiving lips are in their hearts, and thus they have spoken with their hearts.
The Lord shall wipe out every deceiving lip, and every tongue that speaks great words;
those […]

Christ left us here to be lights…
There would be no unbelievers if we were the Christians we should be.
Everyone would convert to godliness if we generally kept the commandments of Christ,
suffered through insults, allowed others to take advantage of us,
blessed when we were cursed, and did good when treated poorly.
For example, Paul was […]

If Jesus had merely said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,”
it would appear that we should seek human praise.
But those who are hypocrites, who cherish honors and covet emptiest glory, seek such praise.
Scripture says about such people, “If I still pleased men, I […]

We should rebuke in love –
not eagerly hoping to injure the person, but earnestly taking care to improve him.
If we have such a mindset, we practice what Christ commanded,
“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone”
(Mt 18:15).
Why do you rebuke such people? Because […]

Then the governors, the commanders, the viceroys, and the court officials
gathered together and beheld the men,
that the fire had no power over their bodies;
neither had it singed their hair, nor scorched their clothes, nor was the smell of fire on them.
(Daniel 3:94, Septuagint)

July 13, 2019 – Epep 6, 1735

Those who are perfect in faith ask God for everything, trusting in the Lord.
They obtain because they ask without doubting and without being double-minded…
Cleanse your heart from doubt, therefore, and put on faith because it is strong…
Consider the doubting mind.
It is wicked and senseless and turns many away entirely from the faith
even though […]

St. Isaac the Syrian

Do not exchange your brother’s love for the love of any fleeting thing,
because love conceals within itself Him who is more precious than all things.
