Lift the lid of the casket

Love anything, and your heart will certanly be wrung and possiblt broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket – safe, dark, motionless, airless – it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of trheartagedy, is damnation.”

I read this quote from C.S. Lewis in Tim Keller’s book The Reason For God. And it freaked me out. It freaked me out because I ‘got it’. I understood exactly what Lewis was trying to say. And in a small way I felt it.

It was a timely reminder to lift the lid on the casket.
