John Chrysostom on Anxiety and Hell

Let us not therefore be anxious, for we shall gain nothing by it, but tormenting ourselves. For whereas He gives both when we take thought, and when we do not, and more of the two, when we do not; what do you gain by your anxiety, but to exact of yourself a superfluous penalty? — St. John Chrysostom, Homily on Matthew 6

Now I know indeed that many tremble only at hell, but I affirm the loss of that glory to be a far greater punishment than hell. – St. John Chrysostom, Homily on Matthew 7
