Do not be proud; do not be angry; do not be despondent, for that is all unworthy of a Christian calling. This calling is so high and wonderful that it is hard for a man to keep himself from pride and to hold himself above despondency among all the dangers and misfortunes. Against these three unhealthy states, the Apostle stresses three healthy ones: against pride, lowliness; against anger, meekness; against despondency, longsuffering.
