Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread - Proverbs 30:8

Where your treasure is, there will be your heart also. - Matthew 6:21

Thoughts I'm pondering from the book Sabbath by Wayne Muller...

"The fundamental wisdom of the vow of poverty is that things are not the problem; the time it takes to buy things, have things, and take care of things is the problem. Everything we invite into our lives requires a certain measure of time and attention - usually more than we think when we acquire it.

Whatever we hold as our own, however briefly, we consecrate with our very life. This alone should give us pause before we invited anything or anyone new into our already crowded and hurried lives."
