Life here is neither a joke nor a toy

2164

One, who is accustomed to often confess on the earth, he will not be frightened to answer to the frightening Christ’s Last Judgment.

The life here is neither a joke, nor a toy. But even so, people instead of being  educated to live in the faith, piety and fear of God, thoughtlessly play with the time, that is given to them for a preparation for eternity.

St. John of Kronstadt
