Ambrose on greed

Ambrose was a unique church leader in that he reluctantly took up the post of Bishop of Milan. This was in a time when leaders jostled for power and title. In one of his writings he comments:

"God ordered all things to be produced so that there would be common food for all, and so that the earth would be the common inheritance of all. Thus, nature has produced a common right, but greed has made it the right of a few." - Ambrose

Challenging thought hey?

Living in Grace,
