The Great Divorce: Allegory by C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis is one smart cookie!

I read The Great Divorce with a group of wonderful ladies and was so glad to have their input to aid my understanding.  It is an interesting story at face value, but the symbolism and metaphor in Lewis’ allegory are wonderful.  The narrator takes you with him as he journeys through the afterlife in search of Heaven.

Rooted: Firm Foundations or Shifting Sand

We are all rooted.  Our balance maintained by nourishing, rich, solid ground or by a shifting sand.

Sand composed of technology, business, entertainment, money, reputation; worldly offerings. They appear solid, but are easily swayed. Alternatively, basking in the light and love of Jesus strengthens us from the inside out.  Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. (Colossians 2:7)  Roots reaching, winding, striving to grow.  Is our nourishment coming from without or within?

Life’s Anchor: Faithful and Trustworthy

Life is hard. We need an anchor.

We are all trying our best to stay afloat in a world that constantly changes current, in a tide of insecurities that never seems to recede.  Jesus, our life-preserver in a rising tide; our anchor in rough waters. This hope that is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. (Hebrews 6:19)  Our anchor does not falter, whether the water is cold or hot, soft or strong, quick or slow. He is constant. He never pushes, he always leads. The world it pushes. Read this, watch that.  Talk this way, think like everyone else. Raise your kid like this expert says, until the next expert comes along that is more popular. Buy, buy, buy… it will make your life easier, more interesting, more envied.  It’s exhausting, swimming in this current, so strong that you end up only treading water.  Until we learn to float.
