Francis de Sales, 17th cent. writer, said that Christ-like simplicity is similar to what we see in little children "who with one hand cling to their father, and with the other gather strawberries or blackberries along the hedges. For just like this, while you are gathering and dealing with the world's goods, you must always keep the other hand in your heavenly Father's, turning to Him from time to time, to see if the way you behave and what you do pleases Him."

(From a sermon by Matthew Barker, Busy-ness, 11/1/2009)
