Humility

    I said this, brethren, because I wanted to show you what great comfort and freedom from anxiety a person may have - with full safety if he does not trust in himself but casts everything concerning himself upon God and on those who, after God, can help him. Learn, therefore, brethren, to inquire and not to guide yourselves. This is good, this is humility, comfort and joy. There is no other route to salvation than this.
