Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
7/1/19, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The Fathers tell us that a man gains possession of the fear of God by keeping the thought of death before his mind and remembering eternal punishment, by examining himself each evening about how he has passed the day and each morning about how he has passed the night; by never giving rein to his tongue and by keeping in close and continual touch with a man possessed of the fear of God, as his spiritual director.

A brother once said to one of the elders, What shall I do, Father, that I may learn to fear the Lord? And he said, Go and become a disciple of a man possessed of the fear of the Lord. We chase away from us the fear of the Lord by the fact that we do just the opposite; we do not keep before us the thought of death, or punishment, nor do we attend to our own condition, or examine how we spend our time, but we live differently and are occupied with different things, pandering to our liberty, giving way to ourselves, self-indulgence this is the worst of all, this is perfect ruin.

What chases away the fear of the Lord as effectively as indulging our fancies? . And when he was asked again, Is it so very dangerous? he said, Yes, there is nothing more dangerous than self-indulgence. It prepares the ground for all the vices because it chases out from the soul the fear of God.'

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers

Oh, Brethren, what is the result of pride? Oh, see what humility can do? What was the need for all these sufferings? For, if from the beginning Man had humbled himself, obeyed God, and kept the commandment he would not have fallen.

Again, after his fall, God gave him an occasion to repent and to receive mercy but he kept his stiff-neck held high. He came to him and said Adam, Where are you? instead of saying What glory you have left and what dishonor you have arrived at? After that, He asked him Why did you sin? Why did you transgress the commandment? By asking these questions, He wanted to give him the opportunity to say, Forgive me. However, he did not ask for forgiveness. There was no humility, there was no repentance, but indeed the opposite.

He answered, The woman whom You gave to be with me (Gen 3:9-12), he did not say, the woman deceived me, but The woman whom You gave to me, as if he wanted to say: This catastrophe has come upon me because of You. So it is, brethren, since Man is not accustomed to blame himself. He does not hesitate to consider even God as the cause of evil.

Then God came to the woman and said to her, Why did you not keep the commandment? as if He wanted to say, At least you, say forgive me, so as to humble your soul and to receive mercy. Again, there was no request for forgiveness. She also answered, The serpent deceived me, (Gen 3:13) as if she wanted to say, If the serpent sinned, where is my mistake?

Why did you act in this way, you pitiable ones? Make a bow of repentance, recognize your fault, be sorry for your nakedness. Neither one of them could blame himself, neither of them had the least bit of humility.
