Quoted


People often think of Christian morality as a kind of bargain
in which God says,
'If you keep a lot of rules I'll reward you,
and if you don't I'll do the other thing.'
I do not think that is the best way of looking at it. I would much rather say that every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you, the part that chooses, into something a little different from what it was before. And taking your life as a whole, with all your innumerable choices, all your life long you are slowly turning this central thing into either a heavenly creature or a hellish creature: either a creature that is in harmony with God, and with other-creatures, and with itself, or else into one that is in a state of war and hatred with God, and with its fellow-creatures, and with itself.

CS Lewis
