Sirach 2:1-6

·      2:1 My son, if you come forward to serve the Lord, prepare yourself for temptation.  2 Set your heart right and be steadfast, and do not be hasty in time of calamity.  3 Cleave to him and do not depart, that you may be honored at the end of your life.  4 Accept whatever is brought upon you, and in changes that humble you be patient.  5 For gold is tested in the fire, and acceptable men in the furnace of humiliation.  6 Trust in him, and he will help you; make your ways straight, and hope in him.
