These Things Are Not First - But We Forget

[When Satan tempted Jesus in the desert] our Lord was not denying that man must be fed, or that social justice must be preached, but He was asserting that these things are not first. 
He was, in effect, saying to Satan, 'You tempt me to a religion which would relieve want; you want Me to be a baker instead of a Savior; to be a social reformer, instead of a Redeemer. You are tempting Me away from My Cross, suggesting that I be a cheap leader of people, feeding their bellies instead of their souls...
Be gone Satan! I am not just a social worker who has never been hungry Himself, but one who says I reject any plan which promises to make men richer, without making them holier.’
Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
