Worth Living For

leave a comment »

Ian,

I was reading some CS Lewis the other day.  He made a good point about the value of things.  He described how it can be a human being’s duty to try and save a drowning man, even going so far as to give their life for them.  But it is far from our call to live solely for the act of saving drowning people.  So I tell you now that I love you and will give my life for you.  I will die for you, but I won’t live for you.  My living belongs to Jesus and Jesus alone.

You will see the value of that someday when the weight of my life is not on you.

I love you,

Dad
