Weekends with Chesterton :: The Christian Ideal

Linking up with Sarah at Amongst Lovely Things for Weekends with Chesterton.

...the great ideals of the past failed not by being outlived (which must mean over-lived), but by not being lived enough.  
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.

  1. Left untried. Yes. It strikes me as what we are doing in our Christian homes- helping our children see the ideal so that they might have the courage and the fortitude to try.


I really enjoy feedback and discussion, so please don't hesitate to comment!
