Live Wisely

 When the heart is occupied with worldly things, especially superfluous ones, it forsakes the Lord - the Source of life and peace - and is therefore deprived of life and tranquility, of light and strength; but when it repents of its care for vain things, and wholly turns from corruptible things to the incorruptible God, then the fountain of living water begins to flow into it, and peace, tranquility, light, strength, and boldness before God and man once more dwell within it. We must live wisely.
