a quote for today

CS lewis quote

“If we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” -CS Lewis

today marks the 50th anniversary of CS Lewis’ last journey. his journey to meet our maker.

this quote of his gets me every time.

every.single.time. it makes me wonder if i’m far too easily pleased! if i’m paying attention to my maker’s gifts for today! if i’m like that child playing with mud in a slum.

i want infinite joy. 

how about you? i hope that this quote makes you think as much as it makes me!
