CQOD: 01/25/07 -- Lewis: care for the future

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 25, 2007
Feast of the Conversion of Paul
    Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
    -- Matthew 6:34 (ESV)

    If I say to you that no one has time to finish, that the longest human life leaves a man, in any branch of learning, a beginner, I shall seem to you to be saying something quite academic and theoretical. You would be surprised if you knew how soon one begins to feel the shortness of the tether: of how many things, even in middle life, we have to say, “No time for that,” “Too late now” and “Not for me.” But Nature herself forbids you [young people] to share that experience. A more Christian attitude, which can be attained at any age, is that of leaving futurity in God’s hands. We may as well, for God will certainly retain it whether we leave it to Him or not.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), “Learning in War-Time”

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You reign supreme, and all that is mine is in Your hands.
