Everything we own is a gift of the Grace of God ~ Ό,τι έχουμε είναι δωρεά της Χάρης Του Θεού

 When we insist on our selfishness and arrogance, we are in fact dwelling on mortality, since the selfish person is cold-hearted and therefore does not make room in his heart to dwell in the spirit of God.
