Every prudent person does not weep in advance, but he waits for whatever the Lord will send him. And what the Lord sends—whether good or bad—he accepts with joy and strives to endure according to his strength. But if he cannot endure—he repents for his faintheartedness. But we become fainthearted beforehand; while still not seeing any misfortune or sorrow, we grieve before the sorrow ever comes. Christian, live in a Christian manner.
