Scripture: Matthew 7:21-23
Journal: Is what you tell people about God true in your heart and in your life?
Reflection: Every poet and musician and artist, but for Grace, is drawn away from the love of the thing he tells, to love of the telling till, down in Deep Hell, they cannot be interested in God at all but only what they say about Him. For it doesn’t stop at being interested in paint, you know. They sink lower—become interested in their own personalities and then nothing but their own reputations. (The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis)
Closing Prayer: Help us never, O God, to love the telling, more than we love you. That would be such a tragedy. Amen.
