A mature Christian sees Christ in everything and everyone else.
|A Prayer Diary||
It is not good to get angry. But if it should happen, do not allow your day to go by affected by it.
Activities are not the main thing in life. The most important is to have the heart directed and attuned to God.
Theophan the Recluse
Forbid, O Lord God, that my thoughts today should be wholly occupied with the world’s passing show.
The ability to illustrate a spiritual event in the physical world is the central truth of icon painting.
Each moment may I seek to serve and to bless,
to heal and to set free all whom I meet.
May this be my only work,
my strongest desire:
Unless a man is assisted by inner work according to the will of God, he labors in vain at what is external.
Sts. Barsanouphios and John
Over the past few decades, our Christianity has become obsessed with what Christians believe rather than how Christians live. . . . But in Jesus we don’t just see a presentation of doctrines but an invitation to join a movement that is about demonstrating God’s goodness to the world.
