singleness of heart

Purity is not a long struggle against that which is impure or forbidden.

Rather is it singleness of heart.

Catch the great thought that from Him,
the Father of Lights,
comes every good and perfect gift,
and therefore nothing outside of God is worth having or craving.

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, pg. 154

Isn't he incredible? It feels so current, like it was written yesterday. What a prophet he was.
