▪️ And Jesus said unto him,
No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. - Luke 9:62
🛑 Let each one, acknowledging his own sins, even now put off the conversation of the old man.
"For no man who looks back as he putteth his hand to the plough is fit for the kingdom of God.".
The Lord, admonishing us of this in His Gospel, and teaching that we should not return again to the devil and to the world, which we have renounced, and whence we have escaped, says: "No man looking back, land putting his hand to the plough, is fit for the kingdom of God.".
Likewise in the same place: "No one looking back, and putting his hands to the plough, is fit for the kingdom of God."
St. Cyprian of Carthage
