Daily Verse

Man in his pomp yet without understanding is like the beasts that perish.

Psalm 49:20

 

Daily Reflection

Man in his pomp is a creature suffused with pride. Pride is deadly as it serves as a barrier to the reality beyond mere self. Pride blinds us, and so, we wander from here to there aimlessly doing this and that with no clear purpose to our wanderings beyond self–aggrandizement.

 

   Food For Thought

The things of this earth are continually passing away: hardly has pleasure begun when it is already ended.

Josemaria Escriva in The Way

Takeaway Question
