wisdom from sirach

my good friend sent me this today---he may have been inspired by my recent facebook posting from baruch (also from the apocrypha). (i can't quite be encouraged by this now b/c i'm depressed and angry but here it goes):

My son, if you come forward to serve the Lord, prepare yourself for
Set your heart right and be steadfast, and do not be hasty in time of
Cleave to him and do not depart, that you may be honored at the end of
your life.
Accept whatever is brought upon you, and in changes that humble you be
For gold is tested in the fire, and acceptable men in the furnace of
Trust in him and he will help you; make your ways straight and hope in

Sirach 2:1-6
