Characteristics of a Godly person

 

 

To be a Godly person you must have strength and courage inside of you. Those that were shown to be great (heroes, leaders etc.) had a big heart; they were full of valiance.  To be a Godly person means to give all of yourself with total trust to our Lord. If someone tells you something that bothers you, just let it go and think to yourself: “I also make mistakes”. It is valiant to tolerate other peoples’ mistakes. A person who is brave, is someone who also has love, and God appreciates that. Bravery does not mean you are a savage but rather that you are gallant. It means that you have gallantry and not misery.

 

From the book “From the Ascetic and Hesycastic Athonite Tradition” Translated by Anna Pipinos and Elias Pipinos.
