#BigRead13: Day 41: Real?

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).

Wed love it, if youre blogging, that you draw attention to other resources online that we can also connect with. 

The Silver ChairC.S. Lewis, The Silver Chair

“Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things-trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And that’s a funny thing, when you come to think of it. We’re just babies making up a game, if you’re right. But four babies playing a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That’s why I’m going to stand by the play world. I’m on Aslan’s side even if there isn’t any Aslan to lead it. I’m going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn’t any Narnia.”

Bible: 1 Corinthians 15:12-34 http://j.mp/1Cor15-1234

Think: How do you respond to those who say that you are engaging with an ‘imaginary world’?

Pray: Thank you Lord that life can be so much richer with you in it, and that there is more to life than this one.

Action: Check 40Acts for “Stand Up, Stand Out”
