Here’s a quote on friendship by the famous CS Lewis. The quote is classic Lewis, insightful & inspiring. But alas, there’s a downside to this warm & engaging quote above Lewis’ picture. The quote doesn’t scratch the surface of who CS Lewis was, nor the immensity of his thoughts, wisdom, writing nor influence. He was truly a giant among men. So let’s be careful that we don’t think we know the man by looking at his picture & reading an inspiring quote.
In the same way, let’s consider that we can often treat God with the same shabby quip and blip method. I’ve definitely been guilty of taking a quick verse and letting that suffice for my understanding of who God is. To really know a person means to spend time with them in lots of scenarios and to listen and watch them with an open heart. How much more true is this for the lifetime adventure of knowing and walking with God. Let’s leave the quips and blips strategy for politics and shallow journalism.
Let’s allow Heavenly Help to teach us the lifestyle of Jeremiah 9:23-24.
