CQOD: 09/05/06 -- Lewis: the badness of sadness

Christian Quotation of the Day

September 5, 2006
    Remove vexation from your heart, and put away pain from your body, for youth and the dawn of life are vanity.
    -- Ecclesiastes 11:10 (ESV)

    My own idea, for what it is worth, is that all sadness which is not now either arising from the repentance of a concrete sin and hastening towards concrete amendment or restitution, or else arising from pity and hastening towards active assistance, is simply bad.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, guard me from temptations to melancholy.
