Is it me or are Mars Bars getting smaller

We all know that size is relative. Just think how big the Eiffel Tower must appear to the eyes of a four year old. And so as we grow up so our memory plays games with us. We remember how steep the hill we used to cycle down was and how immense a width of the swimming pool seemed until, that is, we experience them again as adults and they assume their normal proportions.

Well what about when it comes to Jesus? Did he seem bigger once upon a time to you? CS Lewis in Prince Caspian reveals why eternally will never grow dull to the eyes of faith in this conversation between Lucy and Aslan:

“Aslan,” said Lucy, “You’re bigger.”

“That is because you are older, little one,” he answered.

“Not because you are?”

“I am not. But every year you grow you will find me bigger”

May it be so.
