Saying of the Desert Christians: Abba Epiphanius 2


"O monk, take thou the greatest possible care that thou sin not, lest thou disgrace God Who dwelleth in thee, and thou drive Him out of thy soul."

Some thoughts:

Here's something I've thought for a long time. Ideally, we Christians are in a relationship of love with God. When we examine relationships based on love it is very clear that some stuff diminishes or even destroys the love while other stuff enriches, nourishes and causes love to grow,

To me, that which diminishes the love God and I share is sin. I need to turn all such over to God, so that love we share can flourish and bloom and invite others into their relationships of love with God.
