In C.S.Lewis’s book the lion, the witch and the wardrobe, of the magical kingdom Narnia, Aslan the Lion represents Jesus or God, Four children are the centre of the story, one Susan, says to the beavers (hey read the book or watch the DVD) after hearing that Aslan is a great lion and not a man, “Ooh! Said Susan, “I’d thought he was a man - Is he quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion.” “That you will, dearie, and no mistake”, said Mrs Beaver; “if there’s anyone who can appear before Aslan without there knee’s knocking, they’re either braver than most or else just silly.” “Then he isn’t safe?” said Lucy. “Safe?” said Mr Beaver; “don’t you hear what Mrs Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.”

In your wisdom do not make God safe, he isn’t safe, but he is wise and we will look at his wisdom next
