Quotemeal: Jun. 2nd, 2007

Saturday, June 2, 2007

"It is a poor thing to strike our colours to God when the ship is going down under us; a poor thing to come to Him as a last resort, to offer up "our own" when it is no longer worth keeping. If God were proud, He would hardly have us on such terms."
— C. S. Lewis
