True Love.

"My dear children, I’m writing this to you so that you will not sin. But suppose someone does sin. Then we have one who speaks to the Father for us. He stands up for us. He is Jesus Christ, the Blameless One. He gave his life to pay for our sins. But he not only paid for our sins. He also paid for the sins of the whole world."
1 John 2:1-2

"We are far too easily pleased"

"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, The Weight of Glory

Truth.

"The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
he also hears their cry and saves them."
Psalm 145:18-19
