“Be gentle-minded, for those of a gentle mind shall possess the earth. Be patient and have a loving heart. Be guileless.
“Be quiet and good, trembling in all things at the words you have heard.
“You shall not exalt yourself or allow your heart to be bold and presumptuous. Your heart shall not cling to the high and mighty, but turn to the good and humble folk.
“Accept as good whatever happens to you or affects you, knowing that nothing happens without God.”
The Didache: The Early Christians
