Think Always of God

A story about Abba John the Dwarf and a camel driver.
The Christian life should always be focused on God. I love this story about the focus Abba John the Dwarf had:
A camel driver came one day to pick up some goods and take them elsewhere. Going inside to bring him what he had woven, Abba John forgot about it because his spirit was fixed in God. So once more the camel driver disturbed him by knocking on the door and once more Abba John went in and forgot. The camel driver knocked a third time and Abba John went in saying, ‘Weaving - camel; weaving - camel.’ He said this so that he would not forget again.
You must admire this level of dedication to God.
"Ancient Faith Radio is a massive blessing in my life! I listen every day as I work. Working from home allows me to listen as I please! The information given and selection of speakers are nothing less than excellent! I am not yet an Orthodox Christian, but after three years with the Church Fathers as my companions, and then AFR in my ear for nearly a year, my wife, three children, and I are anticipating our entrance into the Church. May Jesus Christ be praised for all the work you are doing. God bless you all!"
