The Things of God
You may have a highly polished shoe.
But your footsteps are no grander
Than those made by a barefoot man.
You may have a fine woolen cloak,
But naked your bodyu is no different
From that of a man dressed in rags.
God made the foot, man the shoe.
God made the body, man the cloak.
Cherish the things of God
Above those of man.
—ancient saying from Robert van De Weyer's book
