C.S. Lewis Says To Stop Being An Intellectual Slacker

I was reading Mere Christianity, by C.S. Lewis on the plane today.  In the chapter called “The ‘Cardinal Virtues'”, Lewis discusses the virtue of prudence.  He writes:

“God is no fonder of intellectual slackers than of any other slackers.  If you are thinking of becoming a Christian, I warn you, you are embarking on something which is going to take the whole of you, brains and all.”

I connect well with this, as I have been realizing how important it is to think, ask questions, and mull over biblical things, and why we do what we do.  Thanks for affirming how I have been feeling lately, Lewis.
