ROMANS 15:5 5 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had,


Endurance is like an unshakeable rock in the winds and waves of life. However the tempest batters him, the patient man remains steadfast and does not turn back; and when he finds relief and joy, he is not carried away by self-glory: he is always the same, whether things are hard or easy, and for this reason, he is proof against the snares of the enemy. St. Peter of Damaskos (Twenty-Four Discourses no. 5, The Philokalia Vol. 3 pg. 224)
