Without approving of all Henry David Thoreau

said/did, it seems he was on-to-something when he observed (my words of his idea) once we have food, clothing, and shelter, what we have after that is better food, better clothing, better shelter, until we have the best food, the best clothing, the best shelter. (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?
