To be crushed

God allows a prideful person who thinks that his power is secured forever, to be crushed and humbled.

St. Nikolai (Velimirovich) of Ochrid and Zicha

 

The greatest enemy

The greatest enemy of love is to be judgmental. As soon as you get a thought of being judgmental over someone, turn immediately to God and say with great sincerity: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, help me to see my own transgressions and not be judgmental over my brother”.

Saint Nektary of Optina

 

The Teacher

The Eldress Ammas said that the teacher has to be one who is not font of rule and power and he is without pride and vanity.
