For our boast is this, the testimony of our conscience, that we behaved in the world with simplicity and godly sincerity, not by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God.
2 Corinthians 1:12
The glory of Christ and the grace of God are so evident and so self-sufficient that we must be content to conduct ourselves to the world in simplicity and godly sincerity. This is so that the testimony we bear is not by anything we could have done to “improve” the gospel, lest we empty the cross of its power (1 Corinthians 1:17). This is also so that the faith of men will not rest in human wisdom but in the power of God (1 Corinthians 2:5).

98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well recognized fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living entirely off his monthly state pension of 80 euros and the kindness of others.
