-- Sermon on 1 John 6, 10
Okay, I'll admit: I don't understand what Augustine is saying. Can anyone help me understand?
Prayer. Lord, whatever you give me is too little for me. Be yourself my inheritance! I love you without reserve: with all my heart, soul, and mind. Of what value is anything you give me that is not yourself!
-- Sermon 334, 3
We must love the orchard owner more than the fruit he gives us.
