The will of the wisp

Set your affections on the things above, where Jesus sits on the Right Hand of the Father.

Desire Heavenly things and not earthly gain.

Prefer to be known in the Gates of Heaven, instead of having some earthly celebrity status.

Walk in the company of the poor, instead of the rich.

Prefer to be humble and meek, instead of great and mighty.

He, who constantly seeks after fame and fortune, is like a boy running through the woods chasing the will of the wisp.

It is an empty vapor.
