Some classic counsel about the Christian life

Be watchful and diligent in the service of God; and often think why thou camest hither, and why thou has left the world. Was it not that thou mightest live unto God, and become a spiritual man?
Be fervent then in going forward, for shortly thou shalt receive a reward for thy labors; there shall not be then any fear or sorrow within thy sphere.

Labor now but a little, and thou shalt find great rest, yea, perpetual joy.

If thou continuest faithful and zealous in doing good, no doubt but God will be faithful and liberal in rewarding thee.

Thou oughtest to have a good hope for obtaining victory, but thou must not be secure, lest thou grow either negligent or proud.

- Thomas A Kempis, The Imitation of Christ
