Daily homily thoughts, 1/10

“And yet – this is the other and equally important side of it – this Helper who will, in the long run, be satisfied with nothing less than absolute perfection, will also be delighted with the first feeble, stumbling effort you make tomorrow to do the simplest duty… Every father is pleased at the baby’s first attempt to walk: no father would be satisfied with anything less than a firm, free, manly walk in grown-up son. In the same way…..‘God is easy to please, but hard to satisfy’ (p. 202-3).” Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
