Today I read again the words of CS Lewis as he attempted to key in on why we put so much emphasis on the temporary things of this world rather than the eternal things of God.

Here is what he said, “You don’t have a soul, you are a soul. You have a body.”

Oh that we could truly understand and embrace this life-changing truth. You and I are not who we are because of a particular arrangement of molecules that makes up our physical appearance. We simply look how we look. What’s inside of each of us is what makes the difference.

Deep inside each of us is the essence of who we are. Call it a soul, a spirit, person, being…whatever. It doesn’t really matter. What matters is that we understand that we are the people within the tent, not the tent itself.

When we understand this it will revolutionize the way we live. And it will radically change the affect each of us has on the people we come in contact with.
