"The remedy for all the passions [...] is humility. Those who possess that virtue have won the whole battle."
- John Climacus, 6th-7th century author of The Ladder of Divine Ascent
(Painting: The Exaltation of the Cross, with the motto "Humility," by Biagio Bellotti, 18th cent.)
A Note to My Readers -
I've decided to remove my Sunday posts from the weekly cycle. Although I hope they've been of benefit to some of you, they are necessarily secondary to my regular work of sermon preparation each week. I've found that having that extra post to write simply added to the burden of my work. For those readers who would still like access to my weekly work in Scriptural exposition, I would ask them to access the podcasts of my sermons (available through a link in the sidebar), since that remains the primary form of my Bible teaching each week.
