13. The will of the Spirit is for everyone that
loves Him to abide in labor. Godís Spirit does not dwell in those that are
living peacefully. The sons of God are distinct from others, because they live
in grief while the world boasts of extravagance and tranquility. God did not
deign for those who love Him to rest while they are still in their bodies, but
for now, to dwell in grief, burdened, in labor, in scarcity, in bareness, in
want, in humiliation, in insults, in bodily inconveniences, in sad thoughts.
Thus are the words fulfilled about them: "In the world you will have
tribulation" (John ). God
knows that those who live peacefully, are incapable of loving Him and
therefore, denies the righteous this temporary peace and enjoyment.
13. Fire does not inflame on wet firewood, and
Godís flames do not ignite in the heart that loves peace.
13. If you are unable to perform a deed
physically, then at least grieve about it mentally.
