faith of family / cooperation with God- quote - Golden Councils of Saint Francis de Sales

Imitate little children who with one hand hold fast to their father while with the other they gather strawberries or blackberries from the hedges. So too if you gather and manage goods of this world with one hand, you must always hold fast to your heavenly Father's hand and turn toward him from time to time to see if your actions and occupations are pleasing to him.

Above all, watch that you never let go of his hand and his protection, thinking that in this way you can gather more. If he should forsake you, you will not be able to step further without falling to the ground. What I mean to say is that in ordinary activities and occupations that do not require strict, earnest attention, you should look at God rather than at them. When they are of such importance as to require your whole attention to do well, then you should look from time to time at God.
