Desert Father story on attachment to our posessions

The same Abba  Macarius while he  was in Egypt  discovered a  man who owned  a
beast of burden  engaged in plundering Macarius' goods.  So he came up to  the
thief as if he was a stranger and he helped him to load the animal. He saw him
off in great peace of soul saying,  'We have brought  nothing into this world,
and we cannot take anything out of  the world.' (1Tim.6.7)  'The Lord gave and
the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.' (Job 1.21)

May God bless all who read my ramblings,
