- A brother questioned Abba Poemen in this way, "My thoughts trouble me, making
me put my sins aside, and concern myself with my brother's faults." The old
man told him the following story about Abba Dioscorus: In his cell he wept over
himself, while his disciple was sitting in another cell. When the latter came
to see the old man he asked him, "Father, why are you weeping" "I am weeping
over my sins," the old man replied. Then his disciple said, "You do not have
any sins, Father." The old man answered, "Truly, my child, if I were allowed to
see my sins, three or four men would not be enough to weep for them."
"A good man obtains favor from the Lord, But a man of wicked intentions He
will condemn." Proverb 12:2
