The Cost of Living : A Personal Reﬂection and Its Outcome (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Cost of Living: A Personal Reﬂection and Its Outcome For it appeared to me that understanding intellectual and practical grasp of the actual situation - was what men of the present day denied to Christ. Directions which, if hard to follow, were yet quite clear in meaning, they calmly set aside as impracticable - and for no reason that could be considered to have enduring weight. An excellent and spirit ually minded clergyman told me, for example, when I asked him about a life which should take no thought for what one was to eat or drink, or wherewithal one should be clothed, that while it might have been possible to live in that way in Palestine and centuries ago, it was not possible in a cold climate, and un der the conditions of modern life. He did not say, but I inferred, that since it was not pos sible to do this, a modern Christian was not called upon to do it.
