(Are we trying to impress our sinner friends with our visits to high-end restaurants, designer clothing, huge houses – and huge bank notes?) As far as I know Thoreau he was not a follower of Christ.

Friend, if he could see THIS without grace, what ought we to see with God’s abundant grace? Amen? Ouch?
