We can't dress only in feathers or live on worms we suck up out of the clay

Saturday, 6/18/16

Our Gospel warns us against being obsessed by money, food, or clothing; but it almost goes too far. We can’t be like birds, dressed only in feathers, living on worms we suck up out of the clay.

We need to be properly dressed, and to follow a proper diet. However, there are too ways in which using those things can be wrong.

One way is when we give was to any type of addiction, when we we become enslaved to out desire for any substance.

The other way is when our lazy habits of eating or relaxing leave us without the will power to do the right things for ourselves or others.
