for Romans 3:23
thought & prayer
C. S. Lewis (1898–1963), in Mere Christianity, said this about two facts being the foundation of all clear thinking about ourselves . . .
Human beings, all over the earth, have this curious idea that they ought to behave in a certain way. . . . They do not in fact behave in that way. . . . These two facts are the foundation of all clear thinking about ourselves and the universe we live in.
