“Sometimes I can feel my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.”
—Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Our soul, this divine gift, it is for us to use wisely. In fact, our most valuable treasure.
"The soul is a much better thing than all the others which you possess. Can you then show me in what way you have taken care of it? For it is not likely that you, who are so wise a man, inconsiderately and carelessly allow the most valuable thing that you possess to be neglected and to perish." Epictetus.
John 15:8 This is to my father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples."
