Appreciate the true treasures

“It often happens that we encounter people who linger on superficial, ephemeral, and banal things; at times because they have never met anyone who spurs them to seek something else, to appreciate the true treasures. Teaching to look to the essential is a crucial help, especially in a time such as ours which seems to have lost its bearings and pursues short-lived satisfaction.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: What do you spend the bulk of your time thinking about or trying to do? Are these things helping you preserve the inherent dignity of you and others as human persons loved by God? If yes, who helped you to focus on the essential aspects of living as a Christian disciple? If no, what immediate desire are you trying to satisfy? How is a short-term solution taking away from your long-term happiness?
