"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word "darkness" on the walls of his cell."
A while back, I posted this quote on my personal Facebook page. I knew it resonated with people based on the number of "likes" and "shares." So, I decided to share it here.
I encourage you to discuss it with your children. What do they think it means? God's glory? Diminishing it? What's the opposite?
Are there other truths/phrases they can suggest? I wonder if they'll use their smarts when filling in the blanks? Would you?
"A man can no more diminish God's glory by ___________________________________ than someone can _______________________________."
Or take it out of the context C.S. Lewis used, and discuss statements like these:
- A friend or classmate cannot make me dumb by telling me I am.
- No one can convince me I'm not creative when I know I am.
- If someone doesn't remember my name, it doesn't mean I'm unimportant.
- If a lot of people don't like my Instagram picture, it doesn't mean it was bad or I am ugly.
What's going on with you or your children lately? Would creating a statement like one of these help you have a meaningful discussion? I think so.
