Is HE Safe?

I have long loved this quote from Chronicles of Narnia …

“Ooh” said Susan. “I’d thought he was a man. Is he-quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion”.

“Aslan is a lion- the Lion, the great Lion.” 


Safe?” said Mr. Beaver … “Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.”

― C. S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Africa 2020. My first encounter with a wild lion. In the middle of our Safari and this mind-blowing experience, I thought of Aslan!
