We Demand a Pleasurable Feeling That Eliminates the Ache
“We want pleasure that we can control to fill us with joy. But it can’t be done. It won’t happen. Still we try, sometimes with obvious things like pornography, overeating, and money; other times with less obvious things like prestige, competence, or power. We demand a pleasurable feeling that eliminates the ache. But that won’t come till heaven.”
Dr. Larry Crabb, Connecting, Page 123
Questions for Reflection:
What are the “less obvious things” that you seek pleasure from?
