And as long as we have power over our book of life, written with our own hands, let us compel to write in it good things and remove the sins, the ones made in the previous life. While in this world, God seals neither the good nor the bad deeds, until the hour of departure, when we end up working in our homeland and move to another country.
Pain is a bad thing, but behind it, behind the suffering and the test lies the blessing of God, the rebirth and the refashion of man and of family. Almost everyone owes their return to this aspect. Behind any trial there is God’s will and of course at that time we cannot see the benefit, but in time we will be able to see it. We have so many examples in this regard!
Money, fortune and all pleasure cannot give you peace and true joy, because they don’t offer anything to the soul. The peace of the soul can be brought only by its Creator. The true peace can be reached only by those who live their life with God. In peace live only those who love and keep the law of God, the psalmist said (Psalm 118: 165).
“Women should fear men”, if the head of men is Christ, but if his head is sin and his god is his stomach, then she hasn’t any salvation advice to learn from him. Without Christ he is dead and the advice of the dead leads to death; you shall not go there! Don’t be afraid of the dead, don’t be afraid of those who don’t fear God. You should only fear sin, because this is what saints also feared.
Usually, when it comes about himself, man is always unfair and changes the scale; he is more rightful towards himself, he chooses the better, the biggest, and the most beautiful part: he cries and rejoices for himself more than for others. But, Christ crucified on the Cross the love for oneself, and gave His life for us.
