Mirrors of His Creation

I knew God was drawing me more deeply into this depiction of God the Father. It brought me to a quote by C.S. Lewis in The Four Loves, “It is easy to acknowledge but most impossible to realize for long that we are mirrors whose brightness, if we are bright, is wholly derived from the sun that shines upon us.”

Needy Love

Humans obviously have need-love. Thus, at first blush, divine love would be gift-love and human love would be need-love. Christianity would then be something like maturing from need-loves to gift-loves. Lewis argues this is not quite right, and Lewis is right about that.
