He who is not submissive

Venerable John Climacus ~ The Ladder of Divine Ascent
Step 4 ~ On Obedience

¶49. He who is not submissive in speech, clearly will not be so in act either. For he who is unfaithful in little is also unfaithful in much, and is intractable. He labours in vain, and he will get nothing from holy obedience but his own doom.
