Keeping the Reins Taut

“How, then, are people to behave at home? If a man can’t be comfortable and unguarded, can’t take his ease and ‘be himself’ in his own house, where can he? That is, I confess, the the trouble.  The answer is an alarming one.  There is nowhere this side of heaven where one can safely lay the reins on the horse’s neck.  It will never be lawful simply to ‘be ourselves’ until ‘ourselves’ have becomes sons of God.”

~ C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock 286
