Beloved,When reading certain chapters of Sirach, a closer look at self is a gift of embracing the Spirit of Wisdom. It encourages us to live lives that are beneficial for self and others. May our deeper look into self be one that is inviting, light, hope and giving.
Love Always in God the Spirit,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
“Whoever has ill will toward himself, nothing is more worthless than he is. But such is the reward of his wickedness. And if he does good, he does it ignorantly and unwillingly. And in the very end, he realizes his own malice. The eye of the spiteful man is wicked, and he averts his face and despises his own soul. The eye of the greedy man is insatiable in his portion of iniquity. He will not be satisfied until he has consumed his own soul, withering it away. An evil eye is directed at evil things. And he will not be satisfied by bread; instead, he will be needy and grieving at his own table.”
Sirach 14:6-10 CPDV
