Searching for God Knows What
“The settled happiness and security which we all desire, God withholds from us [because of] the very nature of the [fallen] world: but joy, pleasure, and merriment, He has scattered abroad [as lightposts along the way].... It is not hard to see why. The security we crave would teach us to rest our hearts in this world and oppose an obstacles to our return to God: the few moments of happy love, a landscape, a symphony, a merry meeting with old friends, a bathe or a football game, have no such tendency. Our Father refreshes us on the journey with some pleasant inns, but will not encourage us to mistake them for home.”
C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
