TEACHING

Truly wise is not the one who teaches with words, but the one who teaches with his example.

Abbas Iperehios

 

THE TEACHER

The true teacher is the one who doesn’t desire high positions and he is clear of vanity and pride. Further, he cannot be tricked by flattery, he is not blinded by presents, he is not ruled by anger, but on the contrary he is forbearing, lenient, more humble than everybody, accepted by everybody, patient, farsighted, and philanthropist.

Amma Theodora

 

THE LEADER

My brother, if they put you in charge, don’t be prideful, but be among your subordinates like you are still one of them. Always think your previous hard work, when you were under someone else. Care about your subordinates and don’t forget them. Because the one who cares about his subordinates and teaches and helps them with proper advices, he will be rewarded by God.

Saint Ephrem
