I’m sure this description brings people to mind for us pastors. He’s go on to say that such an attitude is harmful to the individual, their brothers and sisters, and the wider world. He also includes a great quote from Spurgeon in the book as follows:
“What is a brick made for? To help build a house. It is of no use for that brick to tell you that it is just as good a brick while it is kicking about on the ground as it would be in the house. It is a good-for-nothing brick.”
It is, as I say, a wonderful little book to read with young Christians, and has many excellent insights into making the most of our new family. In Harris’ words “don’t be a consumer, be a communer.” Epic!
