"Thrift in itself is always a thirst to make all things thrive, animal, vegetable, or mineral; to make them prosper and produce; to prevent their being wasted, or, in other words, destroyed." -G.K. Chesterton
Fascinating article by Chesterton in which he argues that a person who is thrifty is one who wants to maximize things for them to thrive. A miser is one who is only concerned with saving money, not with helping things thrive, and therefore he wastes more than anyone else.
It's one of those rainy evenings that seems best suited for listening to jazz and reading G.K. Chesterton.
"Over & above the horrible rubbish-heap of books I've written, now filling the waste-paper baskets of the world, there are a vast number of books I have never written, because a providential diversion interposed to protect my fellow-creatures who could endure no more." G.K.C.
On Sunday I get to preach for a man who has been a real deal friend since we were roommates in college & in each other's weddings. Few friends last this long. Preaching at Waynesburg Christian Church in Westport, Indiana, this weekend. And hanging out with old friends.
