Two Gifts from God

 Two gifts God gave to men, by which they may be saved and delivered from all the passions of the old man: humility and obedience. But we do not strive after them, do not desire to abide in them, nor be guided by them. Leave off all evasions, bend your neck  to humility and obedience, and you will receive mercy.
