Earthly riches are like the reed. It's roots are sunk in the swamp, and its exterior is fair to behold; but inside it is hollow. If a man leans on such a reed, it will snap off and pierce his soul.

I was just reading that one George, and there you have posted it. Cheesy


'The Holy Ghost does not stop at merely forbidding us to take and to covet the wealth of our neighbour -- He does not wish us even to consider it or dwell upon it, lest we should want to lay our hands upon it.'

St. Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney, the Cure of Ars

This quote reminds me of one of the quotes on modesty.

Shin, it looks like the 3 of us were reminded of the same thing at the same time. Smiley

And what a true quote I am thinking..

'There are three things which produce love of material wealth: self-indulgence, self-esteem and lack of faith. Lack of faith is more dangerous than the other two.

St. Maximos the Confessor

Keep a clear eye toward life's end. Do not forget your purpose and destiny as God's creature. What you are in his sight is what you are and nothing more. Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take nothing you have received....but only what you have given; a full heart enriched by honest service,love, sacrifice, and courage.

I think it is called 'Types'. I find it fun and interesting to read about. Parallels between the OT and NT and how wonderfully God planned everything out.  Smiley

Yes, while the human author was busy writing his part, the literal sense of the Bible,The Holy Spirit too was busy with the Spiritual sense  crucifix

This reminds me of the real purpose of wealth.

Money obscures a good deal. You have to think about what it really represents and is for.

'The rule of piety admits nothing new. All things are to be delivered to those who come after us with the same fidelity with which they were received by us. It is our duty to follow religion, not make religion follow us.'

You induce yourself to reverence by admiring God's immensity and beholding your smallness.

This reminds me a great deal of what our new Holy Father has just said in a recent homily:

"Wars, violence, economic conflicts that hit the weakest, greed for money that you can’t take with you and have to leave. When we were small, our grandmother used to say: a [burial] shroud has no pocket."

These are powerful words that I definitely need to meditate on.

It's a very simple and powerful message, In the end the only thing that is truly our own is our free will, and what you have done with it will be written within your soul, and it's in that, that we are judged, not the brand of clothing we're buried in.

Let a man consider that God always seeth him from heaven, that the eye of God beholdeth his works everywhere, and that the angels report them to Him every hour.

We have such a short time on this earth, and everything we do here has such consequences for eternity.
