Investing in God’s grace


One of the most popular Russian saints, Saint Seraphim of Sarov, said in one of his spiritual conversations entitled On the Acquisition of the Holy Spirit: “Acquire the grace of the Holy Spirit also by practicing all the other virtues for Christ’s sake. Trade spiritually with them; trade with those which give you the greatest profit”. Why can’t I start investing “in God’s eternal bank” by practicing solely and entirely all virtues for Christ who is living in the person I come across?
