Living Like a Pilgrim

We must beware of thinking too much about our meals, our furniture, our houses, and all those many things which concern the life of the body.
We must strive to live like people whose first thoughts are about the immortal soul. We must endeavor to pass through the world like people who are not yet at home, and are not so troubled about the fare they meet with on the road and at the inn. Blessed are they who feel like pilgrims and strangers in this life, and whose best things are all to come!
~ J.C. Ryle
