His will is glorious

Road-Winding-Road-webs copy

Anytime we emphasize
the difficulty of obeying
the will of God above
the rewards and fruits
of doing His will,
we will have a victim’s
approach to obedience.
His will is glorious.

Too easily pleased

essence-of-paradise

Indeed, 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.

–C. S. Lewis
