Offer Your Shirt Also

When Macarius was living in Egypt, one day he came across a man who had brought a donkey to his cell and was stealing his possessions. As though he was a passer-by who did not live there, he went up to the thief and helped him load the beast, and sent him peaceably on his way, saying to himself, "We brought nothing into this world (I Timothy 6:7) but the Lord gave; as He willed, so it is done: blessed be the Lord in all things."
