Indeed if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the gospels it would seem that Jesus finds our desires not too strong but too week. We are half hearted creatures fooling around with drink, sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered to us. Like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at sea.
