There is a back-to-front saying these days: “less is more.” What could that possibly mean? Charles sat down with the children when they were quite young. “You know that my father lost everything he owned when his land was taken away from him and with that his source of income. We children had to learn to manage with very little. We were able to rebuild our fortune but I am proud to say that father never allowed us to cheat anyone. The experience we had taught us to be more generous with the poor. I believe that small moneys used faithfully can help to teach us wisdom in our use of greater wealth in money or other possessions. God who sees the heart knows where our primary love is.”
He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much. You can’t serve both God and Money. Luke16:9-15.
Pope Francis: Do not fall into the terrible trap of thinking that life depends on money and that in comparison with money anything else is devoid of value or dignity. We cannot take money with us into the life beyond. MV19.
