treasure for himself

October 21, 2019 6:00 am

“Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich in what matters to God.” (LK 12: 21) 

Self-centered persons are never happy. There is always more to achieve, more to have, more things needed to make us happy. The world seen from the ego-perspective is full of demands, lack of respect, and gentleness. What we would like to do is to change ourselves: make us givers, not demanders, and altruists, not egoists. And this is a totally different world. 

“Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.” (Gospel Acclamation)
