Lewis: prosperity

Thursday, April 26, 2012
    [Jesus:] “What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?”
    —Matthew 16:26 (NIV)
    Prosperity knits a man to the world. He feels that he is ‘finding his place in it’ while really it is finding its place in him.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), The Screwtape Letters, Macmillan, 1944, p. 143 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, turn my eyes away from worldly things towards You.
