Wednesdays Words of Wisdom...C.S. Lewis on Properly Ordered Love

"When I have learned to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now. In so far as I learn to love my earthly dearest at the expense of God and instead of God, I shall be moving towards that stage in which I shall not love my earthly dearest at all. When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but increased."

C.S. Lewis

(HT: Matt Ballard)
