Both human worries and desire for pleasures can shipwreck the soul.  The parables of the Lord call us to lead a sober life.  Sobriety keeps pleasure in perspective. Sobriety helps legitimate worries to have context.  Appealing to God always makes for a clean heart.

Lord Jesus, help me to hear your words and to imitate your deeds.  You invite me to experience a peace that the world cannot give.  May your Spirit inspire me to make a leap of faith.
