Lewis: mind Heaven

Tuesday, January 4, 2022
    ... when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
    —1 Peter 5:4 (NIV)
    If you read history, you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next. The Apostles themselves, who set on foot the conversion of the Roman Empire, the great men who built up the Middle Ages, the English Evangelicals who abolished the Slave Trade, all left their mark on Earth, precisely because their minds were occupied with Heaven.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), Mere Christianity, New York: MacMillan, 1952, reprint, HarperCollins, 2001, p. 104 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 5:11-12; Luke 6:35; 2 Tim. 4:8; Heb. 11:24-26; Jas. 1:12; 1 Pet. 5:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, fix my eyes on heaven.
