In the battle with vanity, cling to the Gospel and example of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. Do not rely on yourself, but on the Lord, not only in important matters, but even in seemingly insignificant ones. Without the Lord, we are unable to do anything truly good for ourselves, and even that which initially seems good will turn out to be harmful if we haven't asked the Lord for help or prayed about it.
