“Whenever we do something with our hearts, we feel joy. And it is also good for us. When we feel the need to respect the other person because he is praying, we are left with a sense of awe. When we have respect for others, we also have respect for ourselves. We do not put our selves first. Philotimo [Christ-life worldview] replaces self-love. We should put ourselves in the other person’s place and always think, “If I were in her situation, how would I want others to treat me? If I were tired, if I were praying, would I want people to bang doors like that?” When you put yourself m another person’s shoes, things look different.”
