I decided it’s time to read through the Chronicles of Narnia again. I’m starting this time with Magician’s Nephew. And I’ve been thinking a lot about a line that little Digory says:
There’s not much point in finding a magic ring that lets you into other worlds if you’re afraid to look at them when you’ve got there.
It seems to apply to so much in my life right now and to life in general.
So often we want to live meaningful adventures, and yet we stand frozen with fears or apprehensions when adventurous possibilities stare us in the face.
We want the benefits without the risk or hard choices or sacrifices that will be needed to get to them.
And so often…
God opens up His World to us, but we choose to stay in ours.
