All things are good in measure;
And too much of one thing is good for nothing, truly.
Enough work, a little leisure…
A bit of sadness, enough of happiness with gratitude fully.

Don’t let your sadness go too far –
There is a measure in all.
Don’t be upset over spilt milk from a jar,
Say “forgive me” and bring down the wall.
If you had a quarrel today,
Do all you can to repair:
Give back, support, comfort, pray…
Only avoid despair.

Fasting can and should be for pleasure –
Even with fasting we need to know measure.
Fasting that is unhealthy
Is not pleasing to God, be it a poor man or wealthy.
Let your fasting be good for body and soul;
Let it help you achieve your spiritual goal;
Let it be helpful for charity and prayer;
Let it help you become a better Christian on every layer.
