Pauci sunt, qui inveniunt (Mt 7:14).

Those who find it are few.

God wants his creatures to find the most valuable things in their lives. However, human beings often prefer to decide what is precious on their own. Consequently, it happens that they lose the divine treasures and cannot recognize the true value of these gifts. Thus, they may behave like the unreasonable animals who only satisfy their desires. But this kind of life leads to disaster sooner or later. On the contrary, the children of God try to live like sisters and brothers. Their main aim is to help people in need and to support them. In this way, they fulfill God's commandments and follow the example of the Son of God. Although it is not easy to live like that, they do their best to improve the condintions of the poor. Furthermore, they live in the presence of the Lord and walk blamelessly in justice. Also they think the truth in their hearts and speak well about others. They never harm their fellow men but honor those who fear the Lord. Therefore, it is a pity that just few are able to be the light and salt of the world.
