Flesh and Spirit

Love, meekness, gentleness, self-accusation, forgiveness, patience, compassion, reproof-these are the works of the Spirit.

THE flesh flatters; the Spirit reproves. The flesh blindly gratifies; the Spirit wisely disciplines. 

The flesh remembers the injury of a friend; the Spirit forgives the bitterest enemy.

The flesh is noisy and rude; the Spirit is silent and gracious.

The flesh is subject to moods; the Spirit is always calm.

The flesh incites to impatience and anger; the Spirit controls with patience and serenity.

The flesh is thoughtless; the Spirit is thoughtful.

Hatred, pride, harshness, accusing others, revenge, anger, cruelty and flattery – these are the works of the flesh.
