Saint Gregory of Nazianzen: There Should Be No Delay Between Your Intention and Your Good Deed

Advertisements

Not even night should interrupt you in your duty of mercy. Do not say: Come back and I will give you something tomorrow. There should be no delay between your intention and your good deed. Generosity is the one thing that cannot admit of delay. Share your bread with the hungry, and bring the needy and the homeless into your house, with a joyful and eager heart.

From a sermon by Saint Gregory of Nazianzen, bishop
