Admonition: 13 Of Patience 1
How much interior patience and humility a servant of God may have cannot be known so long as he is contented 2 But when the time comes that those who ought to please him go against him, as much patience and humility as he then shows, so much has he and no more.
- Simply put our patience and humility are measured when we behave in the worse manner rather than our best.
- When we are discontented rather than contented. Cod O. goes further in saying that we mortals can be very patient and humble when we get our own way.
