Are you reading your Treasury?

Clement of Rome's writing today in the TDP:

Let the strong not despise the weak, and let the weak show respect to the strong.

...Let the wise man display his wisdom not by words but through good deeds. Let the humble not bear testimony to himself but leave someone else to witness about him. Let him who is pure in the flesh not grow proud of it and boast, knowing that someone else bestowed on him the gift of self-control.


Let us consider, then, brothers, from what matter we were made--who and what matter of beings we came into the world, as it were from a grave and from utter darkness. He who made us and fashioned us, having prepared His bountiful gifts for us before we were born, introduced us into his world. ...

These things therefore being known to us, and since we look into the depths of the divine knowledge, it is necessary to do all things in [their proper] order, which the Lord has commanded us to perform at stated times. . . .

We never skip the reading (or writing) but this morning did as I was having a down in the dumps moment. I will try again this evening. Sound like a good one.

You are convincing me I really do want a TDP for the kids and I at home. My husband has one in his office, and I haven't wanted to spend the money on another one. Now if I just wait two more months his office will be at home for a year. Maybe I'll just wait till he (God willing) gets a call and we can settle down.


But I've never been good at waiting.

Megan: Get it, if you can afford it. I use it with our kids during breakfast and lunch devos, when I remember to do breakfast and lunch devos, and for my own self whenever I remember to take care of my own self. :)

It's worth every penny.
