JMJ

Blessed Thursday!

Readings:
Jeremiah 17:5-10 (trust in man brings a curse; trust in God brings blessing)
Psalm 1:1-6 “Blessed are they who hope in the Lord”
+Luke 16:19-31 (the story of Lazarus & the rich man)

How can the man
in luxury
be cursed;
the beggar
blessed?

There must be more
to this
than meets the eye.

We cannot see
the emptiness
of heart
that simulates
the flames
of hell,
nor know
the rapture
of a soul
filled with
the Presence
of the Lord.

Am I fooled by appearances into believing that luxury brings happiness?
Do I give priority to spiritual wealth?
