What are your inputs?

“We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” ~ CS Lewis.

Inputs lead to outputs.

Don’t fall into the dangerous trap of being more concerned with a personal narrative every day — and therefore less concerned with harvesting permanent virtues, such as the never-changing fruits of the spirit (Galatians 5).

True? If it’s true for individuals, then it’s true for collective sets of individuals: neighborhoods, communities, cities, and for our country.

Challenge yourself everyday: “What are my inputs?”

Don’t expect success without hard work. Don’t expect to be educated without reading books. Don’t expect any historical context for that education unless those books are much older than you are.

Above all, don’t expect morality without God.

Inputs lead to outputs.
