Our First Job

January 6, 2010 — 1 Comment

As I face each new day, I find myself agreeing with C.S. Lewis’ observation that:

“The moment you wake up each morning, all your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals.”

But we must respond in kind: “The first job each morning consists in shoving it all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other, larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in.”

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, (SanFrancisco, CA: Harper, 2001), 198.

One response to Our First Job

  1. Yes. I know I need to remember this more often. This is one to write out and tape to my bathroom mirror. Thanks for the reminder. I always find inspiration and encouragement here!
