One of the many blessings in my life is getting to work with a great group of people. A group I call my friends.
CS Lewis writes a lot about friendship in “The Four Loves”. Below is one of my favorite quotes:
A secret master of ceremonies has been at work. Christ, who said to the disciples, "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you," can truly say to every group of Christian friends, "Ye have not chosen one another but I have chosen you for one another." The friendship is not a reward for our discriminating and good taste in finding one another out. It is the instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.”
― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves
The instrument by which God reveals to each of us the beauties of others.
In our silliness and goofy meetings. Our jokes and awkward hugs, we are shown the beauty in God’s creation of another person who is on our side.
We stand side by side and look out at the world and work to make it better. We work to show the beauty of those special relationships in a way that brings light and crowds out the darkness.
Make it a great day.
