So then, with the Grace of Christ, when you become accustomed to cutting off your own will repeatedly, this will occur naturally and without grief, just like your own desire is always being fulfilled. This is because you don’t want things to happen the way you want, but you want them to happen as God does, and as a result of this, you live peacefully with everyone.
Then, being peaceful, you also pacify the heart of another.
