For He, who had been a little while ago invoked by the blind man as “the Son of David”’ – Tertullian of Carthage #coptic #orthodoxy #christian #lent

‘“Love unites us with God, for love covers a multitude of sins76.” This love stems from reflecting on the Day of Judgment. God never forgets a labor of love, even a cup of cold water, and He does not forget its reward. When we lift our eyes to the Day of Judgment, we desire to see, even those who trouble us as angels of God, participating in praising and glorifying God. This creates in us a deep spiritual love.’ – St Clement of Alexandria #Coptic #orthodox #Christian #lovecovers #godislove #churchfathers

Peacefulness, humility and the tranquility of a life well lived is a appropriate for all Christians, according to the word of Lord. He regards only those who are “poor and of a contrite spirit, and who tremble” at His word… (A Christian’s) character should provoke everyone to imitate your life and conduct… Your good works are indeed, the greatest part of you. They are improved by the honour of confession itself; guard and preserve your confessions by peaceful and virtuous lives. ~ St Cyprian #christian #dailyreading #Honour #coptic #copticorthodox #newyear

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. James 4:13-14 . . . James is not trying to take away our freedom to decide, but he is showing us that it is not just what we want that matters. We need God’s grace to complement our efforts and ought to rely not on them but on God’s love for us. As it says in Proverbs: “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth” (Proverbs 27:1) – St. John Chrysostom #vapour #coptic #orthodoxy #christian #dailyreadings #submit #hiswill we look to the #lifeoftheworldtocome #everlastinglife
