A Bit of Wisdom from C.S.Lewis

Saturday, April 18th, 2020

Today, let’s celebrate those individuals who have made a difference in our lives. I want to acknowledge the individuals I met during my time at Judson College/University. During my time there as a student my life took off in a new direction that would forever change the landscape of my life. The people I met planted seeds that I have been able to cultivate through the years. Some of those individuals have passed away, others moved away and we lost touch, and then there are those of us who have weathered the storms of time and space and our friendships have grown. Since that time I have had the opportunity to met many other individuals whom I’m blessed to call my friends.

As C.S.Lewis puts it, friendship is unnecessary and has no survival value, in fact it gives value to survival. In my opinion, for what it’s worth, friends are precious gifts from God. People who care for one another, comfort each other and are compassionate. They love us most especially when we find it hard to love ourselves.

“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”—Proverbs 17:17

Some friends play at friendship but a true friend sticks closer than one’s nearest kin.” —Proverbs 18:24

“Iron sharpens iron, and one person sharpens the wits of another.” —Proverbs 27:17

So, send a text, send a letter or any type of communication to let your friends know you love them, you care for them and you are praying for them.

Have a Blessed Day! ☀️🌻💛

  1. Last week I wrote a poem about a woman who discipled me because of I was reflecting on many of thing you just said. I too have lost touch with her but the impression she had upon my life continues to renew my spirit and I disciple and give of myself to other women because of her willingness to give to me. Great post!
