At your post when the inspection comes

Whatever a person believes about eschatology, it must never undermine…

sober work for the future within the limits of ordinary morality and prudence…. For what comes is judgment: happy are those whom it finds laboring in their vocations, whether they were merely going out to feed the pigs or laying good plans to deliver humanity a hundred years hence from some great evil. The curtain has indeed now fallen. Those pigs will never in fact be fed, the great campaign against white slavery or governmental tyranny will never in fact proceed to victory. No matter; you were at your post when the inspection came.

C. S. Lewis, “The Christian Hope,” Eternity (March 1954), p. 50.
