Got to have direction




Here is a picture of a crazy homeless man wandering in the middle of the street oblivious to the people and traffic around him. I'm guessing his thoughts are not that similar to what most of the people around him are thinking.

Sometimes like a bum, we wander about aimlessly. We think not so much of the future, but only of the present. A potentially dangerous situation to be in, especially when the devil is involved. He tempts us with sin and its temporal rewards. Enticing us with the pleasures of this material world and excludes the consequences attached to it after this short earthly life.

The homeless man in the picture is unfortunate indeed, but those of us who have souls similar to that of a bum are the true unfortunate ones.

And so as not to starve my soul I will add this newbie check-list to my weekly itinerary.
  • Participate in the Eucharistic Mass Celebration
  • Go to confession
  • Pray the rosary (if not everyday then at least all the decades of the rosary)
  • Save the world
Whatever our 'to do' lists maybe let us not forget to include some if not all of the 'items' that can help us reach our true final destination. God.

May God bless us all.



P.S.

Here is a passage you might want to lookup:

Matthew 6:19-21
