The Deceitfulness of Wealth

Tuesday, Dec. 15                        

“People who have what they want are fond of telling people who haven’t what they want that they really don’t want it.”—Ogden Nash.  This is a cute way of saying that the things the world craves doesn’t satisfy the soul.  In the parable of the sower in Mt.13, Jesus said that the seed that fell on thorny ground was choked out by the “worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth.”  That is the Biblical rendition of Ogden Nash’s observation.  I don’t know much about Ogden Nash, but I hope the truth he came up with led him to what really satisfies the soul.
