Ante-Nicene Father Quote of the Day

Wherefore the Lord says, “Take My yoke, for it is gentle and light.”3016 And on the disciples, striving for the pre-eminence, He enjoins equality with simplicity, saying “that they must become as little children.”3017 Likewise also the apostle writes, that “no one in Christ is bond or free, or Greek or Jew. For the creation in Christ Jesus is new, is equality, free of strife—not grasping—just.” For envy, and jealousy, and bitterness, stand without the divine choir.
