Lord, as I work today let me believe not only in the world of space and time. Give me grace to understand that the most real world of all is the one I cannot see or touch.
Today I need to be concerned with my job and the needs of my body. But it is the needs of my soul that I must care most about.
I want to remember that what really matters is not money or possessions, houses or lands, bodily comfort or pleasure, but truth and honor and meekness and helpfulness, and above all a pure love of you, my God. Amen
