Daily Reflection for February 22, 2023

A brother asked the Abba Agathon, ‘I have received a command, but there is danger of temptation in the place connected with it. Because of the command I wish to do it, but I am afraid of such danger.’ The old man said to him, ‘If this were Agathon’s problem, he would fulfil the commandment and thus he would overcome the temptation.

Give all your fears to God and your soul will be at rest.
