In your patience possess ye your souls, (Luke 21:19).Therefore,
do not become weak and despair when you have the chance to possess your
soul.To possess your soul means to give
it the significance and place which it was appointedby God. i.e., royal, like unto God, venerated, holy.To not do this means to destroy your
soul.For what isa man profited if he
shall gain the whole world and lose his soul? (Matt 16:26).Therefore, always have in mind first the
spiritual welfare of others, and then what is physically necessary: comforts,
tranquility and, perhaps, time for relaxation.
