So now and then I awaken with a quote that just won't let me go. It wraps itself around me for all its worth, until I know I need to stop and really pay attention. Today, it's a CS Lewis quote, though I actually didn't know it was until I combed the internet for it. Then I hit the side of my head because of course--OF COURSE--it is.
"When I have learned to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now. In so far as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God, I shall be moving toward the state in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all. When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but increased."
Think on this a moment.
Are first things first with you?
Do you love God better than your earthly dearest?
I have nothing to add to his profound words.
See you tomorrow.
