Don’t Miss It

What do we mean when we say that a picture is “admirable”? We certainly don’t mean that it is admired…for bad work is admired by thousands and good work may be ignored. Nor that it “deserves” admiration in the sense in which a candidate “deserves” a high mark from the examiners–i.e. that a human being will have suffered injustice if it is not awarded. The sense in which the picture “deserves” or “demands” admiration is rather this; that admiration is the correct, adequate or appropriate response to it, that, if paid, admiration will not be “thrown away”, and that if we do not admire we shall be stupid, insensible, and great losers, we shall have missed something.
-C.S. Lewis, Reflections on the Psalms

May you look upon the beauty of Jesus Christ today and see someone infinitely worthy of admiration.
