Saying of the Desert Christians: Abba Isidore 3


Abba Isidore of Pelusia) said, 'Prize virtues and do not be the slave of glory; for the former are immortal, while the latter soon fades.'

What the abba says here is self-evident. We already know this. But oh my, how many are the temptations to be a slave of glory, even in tiny ways like getting all the attention in a small group or standing in line at the Post Office.
