Lewis: Being Used

We must not fret about not doing God those supposed services which He in fact does not allow us to do. Very often I expect, the service He really demands is that of not being (apparently) used, or not in the way we expected, or not in a way we can perceive.

A good word for me today, and to keep in mind for years ahead.

C. S. Lewis, in a letter to an American woman, Feb 22, 1958
