Consider these of C.S. Lewis:
“If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and to earnestly hope for.
enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I suggest that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. 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 halfhearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex, 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.
We’re far too
pleased.”
