Weekend Wisdom with: C.S. Lewis

Alright, guys. This one is going to be short and sweet. I have always loved this quote from C.S. Lewis’s book, “Weight of Glory”. It explains our humanity far too well and I relate to it way more than I would like to admit:

“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 mudpies 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.”

You know the mudpies you might be tempted to mess around in this weekend. Just don’t. Infinite joy awaits for those who would only have hearts to see.

Happy Friday!

Morgan
