Jack on joy, ed. 3

I can’t help myself but quote C.S. Lewis.  This man knew about joy so heed his wisdom well.

“Now God designed the human … to run on Himself … God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there.  There is no such thing.” (Mere Christianity)

This quote lines up so well with the Naugle book I posted on yesterday.  Do we really believe that we will not know joy without God?  Or do we continue to believe we can find a gladness in something other than or apart from God – if we could only accomplish enough or look the right way or find the right adrenaline rush or get the newest toy, then joy would flow?

Today I’m going to live seeking no happiness apart from God.
