What does it say about a person when most of their favourite and most quoted heroes are fairytale animals? thinking about the theological depth of this beaver quote:
Mrs Beaver to Miss Lucy:
‘If there’s anyone who can appear before Aslan without their knees knocking, they’re either braver than me or else just silly.’
‘Then he isn’t safe?’ asked Lucy.
‘Safe?’ said Mr. Beaver. ‘Don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.’
And there, is the kicker. Life with Jesus, is not necessarily “safe” in the definition of having my needs met. But it is good.
Life in the Callaghan house in the next few weeks may not (will not) likely be safe in terms of having all the answers that we would like or need. But we know Who it is we believe in and trust in. And we know that above all, He is good.
I will trust in your goodness.
