Quote

“I reject at once an idea which lingers in the mind of some modern people that cultural activities are in their own right spiritual and meritorious—as though scholars and poets were intrinsically more pleasing to God than scavengers and bootblacks.

…The work of Beethoven and the work of a charwoman become spiritual on precisely the same condition, that of being offered to God, of being done humbly ‘as to the Lord.'”

– C.S. Lewis (The Weight of Glory)

 

Whatsoever ye do, work heartily, as unto the Lord, and not unto men; knowing that from the Lord ye shall receive the recompense of the inheritance: ye serve the Lord Christ.

Colossians 3:23-24

Lewis was a master at bringing Biblical truths to life, at making them infinitely applicable. I love reading his work and being able to see the scripture behind pretty much everything he says.
