is acceptable to God when abstention from food is accompanied by
refraining from sins, from envy, from hatred, from calumny, from
vainglory, from wordiness, from other evils. He who is fasting the true
fast ‘that is agreeable’ to God ought to shun all these things with all
his strength and zeal, and remain impregnable and unshakeable against
all the attacks of the evil one that are planned from that quarter. On
the other hand, he who practices abstention from food, but does not keep
self-control in the face of the aforesaid passions, is like unto one
who lays down splendid foundations for a house, yet takes serpents and
scorpions and vipers as fellow-dwellers therein.”
Totally stole (borrowed) a coworkers standing desk elliptical so I’m walking while standing at my desk today. Only been using it about 20 minutes and my legs already burn!
I have already ordered one of these from Amazon and supposedly it’s supposed to be here Saturday but I’ve been having major issues with their shipping lately. But hopefully that will help boost me up in the weeks to come!
