The Meditation

The love of the world and the love of God is

basically the battle between the love of the

temporal and the love of the timeless.

Shortsighted people are long on worldly love.

Farsighted people are short on the love of

material and long on the love of the eternal.

Jesus had the most perfect balance in his love of

good things in the world and the love of God.

He said, “I am come that you might have life,

and have it more abundantly.” He also said,

“In my Father’s house are many mansions.”

There need be no conflict in these two loves when

we follow Christ.
