Great post Gary. I've been asking, "How can I worship God best?" lately. I think we have a tendency to settle for good/fine and unintentionally neglect doing all God calls us to do.

I love the CS Lewis quote where he says that our desires are not too strong but they are too weak. We are far too easily pleased.

Thanks for the great comments, Matt and Jonathan!

Matt, your comment reminds me of Col. 3:23 "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men." In other words, attempt great things for God!

Jonathan, I love that Lewis quote! You're right to remind us that desires are not necessarily evil, they are fallen (weakened?). Reminds me of Psalm 37:4
"Delight yourself in the LORD,and he will give you the desires of your heart." This verse points to a possible restoration of our desires to God's design.
