Slave, bargainer, son

As the Pilgrim states: “according to the Holy Fathers, one who performs saving works simply from the fear of Hell follows the way of bondage, and he who does the same just in order to be rewarded with the Kingdom of Heaven follows the path of a bargainer with God.  The one they call a slave, the other a hireling.  But God wants us to come to Him as sons to their Father.”

(Devotional on Luke 16:10-15, Dynamis)
