Avoid boasting about one"s own good works, for arrogance of this kind is an abomination before the eyes of God and stops one from doing good in adversity, "because tribulation produces perseverance, and perseverance produces character, and character produces hope." - "On Ecclesiasticus 3.3"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
