- Humble Service: For the Lord wishes and admonishes this when He
said, :'He who wishes to be first and great among you, let him be
the last and the minister and servant of all.' Therefore it is
necessary that service before others be without a reward, nor should
it bestow on the server any honor or glory, so as not to contradict
Scripture by appearing 'pleasing to men' or 'serving to the eyes.'
Not serving men, but the Lord alone, let him keep to the narrow
path. Let him submit promptly to the single yoke of the Lord and
carry it patiently in order to be brought with pleasure to his end
with positive love."
St. Macarius the Great.
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good
works and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
