Sowing Discord. Lying.

There are six things which the Lord hates, seven which are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and a man who sows discord among brothers. [Proverbs 6:16–19]

 

Fire and Brimstone

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, as for murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”[Rev 21:8]

Despise Being Despised

“To obtain perfectly the gift of humility, four things are required: to despise the world, to despise no person, to despise one’s self, to despise being despised.”

— St. Philip Neri

Don’t lose your peace.

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” – St. Francis de Sales

Resurrection

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

John 11:25–26

Pray

“To the extent that you pray with all your soul for the person who slanders you, God will make the truth known to those who have been scandalized by the slander.”

— St. Maximos the Confessor

Abound in hope

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Romans 15:13

Tearing down.

Fr. Dwight Logenecker… It is easier and more fun to tear down than to build up. It is easier and more fun to blame others than to take responsibility. It is easier and more fun to take the broad road to destruction.
