Pleasing God By Being Aware

“Someone asked Abba Anthony, ‘What must one do in order to please God?’  The old man replied, ‘Pay attention to what I tell you:

whoever you may be, always have God before your eyes;

whatever you do, do it according to the testimony of the holy Scriptures;

in whatever place you live, do not easily leave it.

Keep these three precepts and you will be saved.’”

(Anthony the Great in The Sayings of the Desert Fathers, p 2)
