"For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived,
serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and
hating one another.' Therefore we ought to be thus to all, to be gently
disposed. For he who was formerly in such a state, and has been delivered
from it, ought not to reproach others, but to pray, to be thankful to Him
Who has granted both to him and them deliverance from such evils. Let no
one boast; for all have sinned. If they, doing well thyself, thou art
inclined to revile others, consider thy own former life, and the
uncertainty of the future, and restrain thy anger. For if thou hast lived
virtuously from thy earliest youth, yet nevertheless thou mayest have many
sins; and if thou hast not, as thou thinkest, consider that this is not the
effect of thy virtue, but of the grave of God. For if He had not called thy
forefathers, thou wouldest have been disobedient."
St. John Chrysostom.
"Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to
the Lord, bless His name; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day
to day." Psalm 96:1-2
Draw nigh unto God and He will draw nigh unto you.
