Possessed by Possessions

Stanley Hauerwas: “Possesed by possessions, we discover that we cannot will our way free of our possessions.  But if we can be freed, our attention may be grasped by that which is so true, so beautiful, we discover we have been dispossessed. To seek first the righteousness of the kingdom of God is to discover that that for which we seek is given, not achieved.”
