Brother Lawrence: our heart with our treasure

Monday, August 27, 2018
    Feast of Monica, Mother of Augustine of Hippo, 387
    [Jesus:] “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
    —Matthew 6:21 (NIV)
    You will tell me that I am always saying the same thing. It is true, for this is the best and easiest method I know; and as I use no other, I advise all the world to it. We must know before we can love. In order to know God, we must often think of Him; and when we come to love Him, we shall then also think of Him often, for our heart will be with our treasure.
    ... Brother Lawrence (c.1605-1691), The Practice of the Presence of God, New York, Revell, 1895, Ninth Letter, p. 37 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 6:19-21; Isa. 33:6; Luke 12:32-34; 2 Cor. 4:18; Col. 3:1-3; Heb. 3:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are present to me.
