But as for You. Pursue Righteousness. Fight the Good Fight of the Faith.
Article by Scott Hubbard (Desiring God)
After more than 50,000 deaths in America alone (and in just over one month), C.S. Lewis’s words about World War II hold true today:
“The war creates no absolutely new situation; it simply aggravates the permanent human situation so that we can no longer ignore it. Human life has always been lived on the edge of a precipice.” (“Learning in War Time,” 49)
We have always lived on the edge of a precipice ready to crumble beneath our feet. The destruction caused by the coronavirus is merely a preview of what will one day happen to us and all we hold dear. Nations and economies, health and relationships will succumb eventually to the ravages of time. Moth and rust will destroy the treasure we thought secure. Life itself, which sprouts green in the morning, will wilt by evening.
