Back To The Truth

Description unavailable

“If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found that it has no meaning:  just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be a word without meaning.”  — C.S. Lewis in Mere Christianity

Dark would be a word without meaning. That particular sentence struck me. So simple, and yet so profound.

How would we, as humans, understand dark, if we didn’t have the light to compare it with?

How can we know when we do morally bad things, if there is not perfection to compare it with?

In a world of moral relativism, where it’s become okay to do something if  “it feels right”, or “I’m not hurting anyone so I’ll do what I want”.

Some, choose to live blind… in the dark, rather than admit that God is.

God is the absolute.

He is truth.

and it is He that gives this life meaning.

It is so easy in today’s society to go for days without actually talking to anyone.

Fast food drive through, talking to a machine.

Phone calls talking to computerized voices.

Self checkouts at the stores.

Chatting via status updates on the internet.

Using phones to text instead of using one’s voice.

As wonderful as technology has been for us as a whole…it can lead to isolation if one is not careful.

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
C.S. Lewis

We all need relationship. We crave it. We were never created to be completely on our own.

Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.

There is nothing better than having a friend to just hang out with. Someone with whom to pray, swap stories, give opinions, occasionally rant, and to hear, “it’s all going to be okay.”  An opportunity to look into the eyes, see a smile, give a hug, hold a hand. Don’t we all want a friend(s) that will stick with us, come what may?

Friendship requires availability.



There is nothing better than being “at home” with another person.

Friendship is a valuable gift.

“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.”  C.S Lewis
