Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Vol. III:
Moral Treatises of St. Augustin: Section 29

Early Church Fathers  Index     

29. As that, “Take no thought for the morrow,” and, “Take therefore no thought what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, or what ye shall put on.” 2344 Now when we see that the Lord Himself had a bag in which was put what was given, 2345 that it might be p. 471 kept for necessary uses as the time should require; and that the Apostles themselves made much provision for the indigence of the brethren, not only for the morrow, but even for the more protracted time of impending dearth, as we read in the Acts of the Apostles; 2346 it is sufficiently clear that these precepts are so to be understood, that we are to do nothing of our work as matter of necessity, through love of obtaining temporal things, or fear of want.
