God made us: invented us as a man invents an engine. A car is made to run on petrol, and it would not run properly on anything else. Now God designed the human machine to run on Himself.
C. S. Lewis
Mr. Lewis puts a profound truth so simply. Hearts are engines that drive the human machine.
13 “My people have committed a compound sin:
they’ve walked out on me, the fountain
Of fresh flowing waters, and then dug cisterns—
cisterns that leak, cisterns that are no better than sieves.
Jeremiah 2:13, Message
We can do ourselves no greater favor that to forgo the substitutes we try to fill ourselves with and go straight for the good stuff!
