Do we forgive our neighbors their trespasses? God also forgives us in His mercy. Do we refuse to forgive? God, too, will refuse to forgive us. As we treat our neighbors, so also does God treat us. The forgiveness, then, of your sins or unforgiveness, and hence also your salvation or destruction, depend on you yourself, man. For without forgiveness of sins there is no salvation. You can see for yourself how terrible it is.
St. Tikhon of Zadonsk
Kontakion, tone 6
My soul, my soul, arise! Why are you sleeping? The end is drawing near, and
you will be confounded. Awake, then, and be watchful, that Christ our
God may spare you, Who is everywhere present and fills all things.
