Each day we will select an extract from the Narnia novels, The Screwtape Letters or Mere Christianity, combined with a Bible passage (not necessarily restricted to Luke’s gospel), something to think about, a prayer, and an action (usually from @40Acts).
We’d love it, if you’re blogging, that you draw attention to other resources online that we can also connect with.
“Nothing is very strong: strong enough to steal away a man’s best years not in sweet sins but in a dreary flickering of the mind over it knows not what and knows not why, in the gratification of curiosities so feeble that the man is only half aware of them, in drumming of fingers and kicking of heels, in whistling tunes that he does not like, or in the long, dim labyrinth of reveries that have not even lust or ambition to give them a relish, but which, once chance association has started them, the creature is too weak and fuddled to shake off.”
Bible: Proverbs 6:9-11 http://j.mp/Proverbs6-911
Think: How much time do you lose whittled away in ‘gratification of feeble curiosities’? What would you change in the future?
Pray: We thank you for allowing us to enjoy life on earth, and pray that we would learn to use our lives wisely.
