"Our willed imitations of God...must be an imitation of God incarnate: our model is the Jesus, not only of Calvary, but of the workshop, the roads, the crowds, the clamorous demands and surly oppositions, the lack of all peace and privacy, the interruptions. For this, so strangely unlike anything we can attribute to the Divine life in itself, is apparently not only like, but is, the divine life operating under human conditions."
-C.S. Lewis, (intro to The Four Loves)
Dear God, help me to reorient my affections and time towards that which is most eternal. Humble my heart that I may become fully aware of your saving Grace. Open my eyes and prepare my heart for the people you place on my path this very day. In Jesus' name, Amen.
