Evagrius of Pontus on five occupations that open us to God.
Have you ever thought about your occupations? I don’t mean your job, but rather your spiritual occupations.
Evagrios of Pontus says that these can open us up to God’s work:
There are five occupations which help to gain God’s benevolence. The first is pure prayer; the second, psalmody; the third, reading the Holy Scriptures; the fourth, contrite remembrance of one’s sins, of death and the terrible judgment; the fifth, work with one’s hands.
In other words, what you do will help determine what you become.
