Augustine: letters from home

Wednesday, July 2, 2014
    Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked.
    —2 Corinthians 5:1-3 (NIV)
    The Holy Scriptures are our letters from home.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), Enarr. in Ps. xc, sermon 2
    See also 2 Cor. 5:1-3; John 14:2-3; Heb. 11:13-16; 1 Pet. 2:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, our true home is with You.
