In his book, “The City of God” St. Augustine wrote:
Accordingly, two cities have been formed by two loves: the earthly by the love of self, even to the contempt of God; the heavenly by the love of God, even to the contempt of self. The former, in a word, glories in itself, the latter in the Lord. For the one seeks glory from men; but the greatest glory of the other is God, the witness of conscience.
There are two kingdoms, and we are all part of one or the other.
The text for this lesson comes from Luke 11:14-23.
