Word Twelve

When someone teaches the Word of God, whether he
does it well or badly, we would sooner bite of our tongue
than forbid his preaching, for there is nothing reprehensi-
ble in good intentions.

He may lack sufficient enlighten
men, but let him preach. However, this man ought to
remember two essential conditions
First of all, he must be certain in his faith: then, he
must not be satisfied with what he knows, but continually
improve his mind. He who abandons learning deprives
himself of a divine blessing, and you will look in vain for
any benefit from his teaching. Indeed, what good is it if he
Winds a turban around his head, keeps the fasts rigorously,
offers up prayers and affects piety, but does not know
where in a particular prayer is the right place to repeat or
pause?
A person who is negligent, who is not strict in his
ways and is not capable of compassion cannot be consid
ered a believer: without self-discipline and consistency one
can not keep man, the faith, In one’s soul.
