To love God better than my earthly dearest

“When I have learnt to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now. In so far as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God, I shall be moving towards the state in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all. When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but incresased.”

~ C.S. Lewis

This was just a great and timely reminder for me about keeping my priorities straight. I have started reading a new book, Relationships – A Mess Worth Making by Time Lane and Paul Tripp. It looks like it is going to be a really good book. I will let you know when I finish it.
