Those Who Want Heaven

“Nothing is more likely to destroy a species or a nation than a determination to survive at all costs. Those who care for something else more than civilization are the only people by whom civilization is at all likely to be preserved. Those who want Heaven must have served Earth best. Those who love Man less than God do most for Man.” 

C.S. Lewis in
“On Living in an Atomic Age” 


My prayer this week: Lord, help me be a person who maintains proper focus in my life. I know you have a wonderful home waiting for me, but while I am still here on earth, I can be about your work … reaching lost souls, serving, and worshipping you. Above all, help me to love you most, so that you might use me most for your glory.
