We are far too easily pleased

In church on Sunday our pastor reminded us that “Every good and perfect thing comes from God”. To believe that you can find anything truly worthwhile apart from him is a lie. It’s so simple, yet so true. Often I find myself distracted with the comforts of this life, instead of focusing on his “infinite joy” that is offered. it reminds me of this C.S. Lewis quote:

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
