Contentment, Humility, and Patience

The idolatry of self, which is the original sin, works covetousness, pride, and restless anxiety in the heart. And these all run together into death.

But the fear, love and trust of the one true God, whereby the heart finds peace and rest in the flesh and blood of Christ, these grant contentment, humility, and patience. And by such faith, which abides in the Body of Christ our God, we live.
