Isaiah 48:17-19; Psalm 1:1-4, 6;

Matthew 11:16-19

Love now, not later

“But wisdom is justified by her children” means much the same as “by their fruits, you will know them”. John was clearly more austere than Jesus, but he wasn’t holier than him. There is a time to weep and a time to laugh. However, as far as holiness goes, wisdom is justified by her children, and charity in all things is the sign of holiness. Love now, not later. Make the most of the present rather than dwelling on the future. “Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero” -- Seize the day, trusting as little as possible in tomorrow.
