Imitating Christ - #3

To be learned and able to discuss the Trinity will get you nowhere if you do not have humility, and therefore displease the Holy Trinity. Lofty words neither save a man nor make him a Saint; only a virtuous life makes him dear to God. It is better to experience contrition than to be able to define it.

To be well versed in Scripture and all the sayings of philosphers will not profit you if you are without God's love and His grace. Nothing matters except to Love God and to serve Him only. The height of wisdom is to set your goal on heaven by despising the world.

Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. Colossians 3:2-3 KJV
