"Let us scatter our love selflessly to all, without regards to the way they act towards us. When the grace of God enters us, we will not be concerned about whether they love us or not or whether they speak to us politely or not. We will feel the need to love all people. It's egotism on our part to wish for others to speak to us politely. If they don't we shouldn't be upset. Let them speak to us as they wish. We needn't become beggars for love. Our aim should be to love them and pray for them with all our soul."
Wounded by Love-The Life and Wisdom of Elder Porphyrios
...Much easier to read than to live. Lord have mercy on this unloving sinner!
