Brother asked the elder:
– What good deed can I do and live with him?
The elder answered:
– God knows what is good. I heard that one of the elders asked Abba Nesteroi: “What good deed can I do?” Abba answered him: “Are not all works equal?” Scripture says: “Abraham was strange-loving – and God was with him; Elijah loved silence – and God was with him; David was meek and God was with him. ” So, see what your soul desires according to God, then do and watch over your heart.
