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.
Bree. “Slavery is all I’m fit for. How can I ever show my face among the free Horses of Narnia? I who left a mare and a girl and a boy to be eaten by lions while I galloped all I could to save my own wretched skin…. I, who called myself a war-horse and boasted of a hundred fights, to be beaten by a little boy – a child, a mere foal, who had never held a sword nor had any good nurture or example in his life.”
“My good Horse,” said the Hermit, who had approached them unnoticed because his bare feet made so little noise on that sweet, dewy grass. “My good Horse, you’ve lost nothing but your self-conceit. No, no, cousin. Don’t put back your ears and shake your mane at me. If you are really so humbled as you sounded a minute ago, you must learn to listen to sense. You’re not quite the great Horse you had come to think, from living among poor dumb horses. Of course you were braver and cleverer than them. You could hardly help being that. It doesn’t follow that you’ll be anyone very special in Narnia. But as long as you know you’re nobody very special, you’ll be a very decent sort of Horse, on the whole, and taking one thing with another.”

Think: What does Bree’s conversation teach us about humility?
Pray: We thank you that we are all equal in your eyes, and that we would remember that we are special to you, but no more special than any other.
