This is a very special quote by Saint Simeon the New Theologian, and something that I should always remember.
My child, know that God does not rejoice because of fasting, or because of vigil, or because of our bodily labors, or because of any other good deed – but only because of a calm, gentle and meek soul and heart. – Saint Simeon the New Theologian.
All these things that we do, such as fasting, keeping vigil, alms giving and other good deeds that we do are very good, but mean nothing if they are not done with a meek soul and heart. But what does that mean? It means to think of myself as nothing and that everyone else is better than I am.
