For the world may tempt and pleasure the hearts of men, woe be the soul who denies God but welcomes earthly delights
whose faith has brought him to understand to live life simply and joyfully, thankfully, with charity and love
is the most precious profit he shall gain if he sows it in his deeds and actions.
What can the world give which God cannot outdo?
God made the world. God overcame the world. God is victory. God is salvation. God saved everyone. Why would anyone want to deny this mercy of His, when He has done it out of pure love and generosity?
For certain reasons, I was inspired to write this. I refuse to condone to worldly principles. Despite it being tempting, that I may be subject to mockery and even be looked down upon, I should endure. This will remind me of what Christ went through for me, to pay for my sins.
