Clay and decay

6 June 2022

The flesh loves pleasures, money, luxurious houses and clothes. All of these are nothing but clay and decay, and that’s the way you should look at them. Love, on the other hand, is what you should have as the most valuable thing in your life. It’s worth sacrificing everything for, submitting everything to, and for its sake becoming indifferent to all else.
