Let it not be supposed that the children of
The Kingdom live in ease and indolence
(these two sins are the first that have
to be eradicated when the search for the
Kingdom is entered upon); they live in a
peaceful activity; in fact, they only truly
live, for the life of self, with its train of
worries, griefs, and fears, is not real life.
The children of the Kingdom are
Known by their life, they manifest the fruits
of the Spirit-â€œLove, joy, peace, long-suffering,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
meekness, temperance, self-controlâ€-
under all circumstances and vicissitudes.
