The Words of Our Elders: Aurelius Augustinus (354-430 CE)

It is not the being seen of men that is wrong, but doing these things for the purpose of being seen of men. The problem with the hypocrite is his motivation. He does not want to be holy; he only wants to seem to be holy. He is more concerned with his reputation for righteousness than about actually becoming righteous. The approbation of men matters more to him than the approval of God. ~ Aurelius Augustinus

The words of our elders, are words of wisdom!

The Words Of Our Elders: George Muller (1805-1898)

There was a day when I died; died to self, my opinions, preferences, tastes and will; died to the world, its approval or censure; died to the approval or blame even of my brethren or friends; and since then I have studied only to show myself approved unto God.

~ George Muller

The words of our elders, are words of wisdom.
