Corrie Ten Boom had a way of getting right to the heart of a matter and making folks re-evaluate their priorities. Her quotes never fail to bear fruit in my heart.
These insights by C. S. Lewis follow a similar theme . . .
“We regard God as an airman regards his parachute.
It’s there for emergencies but he hopes he’ll never have to use it.”
“If God were proud He would hardly have us on such terms: but He is not proud, He stoops to conquer.
He will have us even though we have shown that we prefer everything else to Him,
And come to Him because there is ‘nothing better’ now to be had.”
Their words bring to mind how God gives grace after grace in response to my heart’s fickle yearnings.
And I am grateful.
“For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.” John 1:16
