Words of Wisdom – August 6, 2010

by Bryant Evans on August 6, 2010

Yesterday I mentioned Epictetus, the Greek stoic philosopher. I thought another comment from the former lame slave would be useful.

“Unless we place our religion and our treasure in the same thing, religion will always be sacrificed.”

Jesus said,

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven…for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19-21)

Epictetus was wise I guess, but Jesus beat him to it. For more great nuggets of wisdom visit the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5-7.
