Pleasing God

But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
-Hebrews 13: 16

'Then God said, "Let us make in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.'
-Genesis 1:26-27

That person over there [your sister, the man across the street, that stranger walking past] is made in God's image. Do you realize that? God's image. Because of this, he deserves respect, courteousness, and generosity. Just like you would give to God. Giving these things to that image of God is giving them to God. It is honouring God when you act as you should toward others. You should give that person more than he himself deserves; that's only what God gave to you.

Some Lewis for the day

One never can see, or not till long afterwards, why any one was selected for any job. And when one does, it is usually some reason that leaves no room for vanity. Certainly, it is never for what the man himself would have regarded as his cheif qualifications.

- C.S. Lewis Perelandra
