$4,000

We have a mountain in front of us *

Four thousand dollars high.

But thou dost own every fleck of gold,

Beneath the sunset sky.

 

We have a problem in front of us

Four thousand dollars long.

But every creature on the globe,

To You, it doth belong.

 

We have a mountain in front of us

Four thousand dollars wide.

But You have promised to guide us

And be ever at our side.

ON THIS DATE

Clive Staples “C. S.” Lewis was born 11/29/1898 at Belfast, Ireland.  Few modern (a relative term J) thinkers (another relative term L) have impacted our day more.  Atheist turned Church of England, his fictional and non-fictional works lead toward Christian thought.  A university don, he was at Oxford (1924-54) and Cambridge (1954-63).  His Screwtape Letters are good (must think backward!) as are Miracles (1947) and Mere Christianity (1952).  His allegorical The Chronicles of Narnia (1950-1956) is considered a classic in children’s literature.  This theologian’s death (11/22/1963) was overshadowed by the murder of JFK that same day.

We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.

“If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world”
