Gleanings from Orthodox Christian Authors and the Holy Fathers

luke6_29

And concerning our being patient of injuries, and ready to serve all, and free from anger, this is what He said: 'To him that smiteth thee on the one cheek, offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak or coat, forbid not. And whosoever shall be angry, is in danger of the fire. And every one that compelleth thee to go with him a mile, follow him two.

And let your good works shine before men, that they, seeing them, may glorify your Father which is in heaven.' For we ought not to strive; neither has He desired us to be imitators of wicked men, but He has exhorted us to lead all men, by patience and gentleness, from shame and the love of evil. St. Justin, Martyr, The First Apology
