St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

January 4

"Give me neither poverty nor riches, but only my share." (Proverbs 30:8)

These words speak directly to our modern environmental concerns. The writer is simply advocating what is known as sustainable living. Living on what we need is good for the soul. It is a spiritual as well as an environmental issue. We are called to be reconciled within ourselves, and to live more simply that others may simply live.

Lord, teach me to live in harmony with your creation, and guide me in taking only my share of what I need. Amen.
