STOP AND THINK – Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives. (C. S. Lewis, British Christian apologist)

Affection is defined as “tender attachment, fondness.” It’s a sentiment we experience when we’re among friends, people we appreciate, and we’re comfortable with. And most of us would say that it’s when we’re with those friends that we are most happy. Perhaps, if we were to broaden our acquaintances and develop more friends, we’d find more happiness.

One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace will have the king for a friend. (Proverbs 22:11)
