Giving up or parting with things I find dear is challenging. The excuse I'll read it again is just that, an excuse. Indeed, I've had all these books for years and I've not returned to any of them. I simply buy the next. So why save them.?
I read the verse offered by Saint Francis de Sales and find myself asking, "How do I bring forth good fruit when I do not share what I have to offer?" So if I hoard these books and no one has the opportunity to avail themselves of them then what good are they? So I intend to take them to the library.
The same could be true of my soul. If I simply do nothing, if I hoard my talent, time, or treasure what good are they to me. If I never intend to use them they become worthless and a terrible waste. So clean out the small spaces I will. I will share what I have with others as Providence guides. I will not hoard those things he has provided but share them so that I can "bring forth good works seasonalby and with discretion."
Wishing all a grand weekend
Thanks be to God!
