I Am A Sojourner on Earth

“’I am a sojourner on the earth, hide not from me Thy Commandments.

A wanderer strives for his goal, passing by, lingering nowhere. Yet, very often, men live as if they had to live on earth eternally.

How can he not forget his eternal destination and not get too much embroiled in things of this world?

(St Theophan the Recluse, Psalm 118, p. 9)
