Thought for the Day: Fellow travellers

There is a wonderful quote by C.S. Lewis that reminds us of the importance of keeping vision, direction and interests in your life.

“The very condition of having Friends is that we should want something else besides Friends. Where the truthful answer to the question “Do you see the same truth?” would be “I see nothing and I don’t care about the truth; I only want a Friend,” no Friendship can arise – though Affection of course may. There would be nothing for the Friendship to be about; and Friendship must be about something, even if it were only an enthusiasm for dominoes or white mice. Those who have nothing can share nothing; those who are going nowhere can have no fellow-travellers.”

So, what are you sharing and where are you going today? And who’s travelling alongside you?
