The prudent man and the therapeutic acts of God’s judgment

“Because he contemplates the therapeutic acts of God’s judgment, a prudent man thankfully endures the tribulations they bring him, holding none guilty but his own sins. But a foolish man, when he sins and is punished, regards as the culprit of his ills either God or men, not discerning the wisdom of Divine Providence.”

St. Maximus the Confessor, Second Century on Love (46)
