How True Is This?

I came across this quote and wondered, “How true is this for me? Do I want it to be true for me? What am I willing to do to make it not be so?”

I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please, not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep, but just enough to equal a cup of warm milk or a snooze in the sunshine. I want ecstasy, not transformation; I want warmth of the womb, not a new birth. I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack. I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please.

– Wilbur Rees

How fortunate are we, that God doesn't just give us $3 worth?
