    Thank you for a soul-searching blog that confronts us with the truth about ourselves and what God needs from us to make our lives happy and prodcutive.

    It’s a lovely sounding cliche:

    “if you want to get it all, give it all up,” but the few ascetics who really followed that advice, still needed friends to bring them food and water (Simon Sylites?).

    How does that work in one’s life? Who takes care of the family when the breadwinner is no longer there? Who takes care of you when you are too old, disabled, or even cannot find work? Saying “The Lord will take care of you” is right up there with “the birds do not worry for food, so why should you?”

    Of course there is the Pauline quotation that he who does not provide for his family is worse than an infidel. Always a text for every occasion.
