The spiritual man combines between virtues, even the ones that seem contradictory.
With him, virtues have no contradiction or decline, but only perfection.
He does not limit himself to one virtue, but struggles to acquire all, according to the lord’s saying: “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father is perfect” (Mt 5:48).
And the spiritual man does not acquire a virtue at the expense of another.
His virtues do not destroy each other, but go along with each other, as we have discussed this issue before here on st-takla.org in other sections. God, blessed be His name, has all the virtues going along with each other.
The Lord Jesus Christ showed us this perfect example. In His personality,
we see love and firmness, mercy and justice, gentleness and courage, sim plicity and wisdom, kindness and strength, service and contemplation... etc.
We will start by talking about perfection among the virtues.
