The favor of God procured a soul-satisfying happiness answerable to the capacity and cravings of our souls. Good meat for the nature of man. . . . Every part of good that nature craves--honor, wealth, pleasure--he has provided.
--Jonathan Edwards, 'Jesus Christ Is the Shining Forth fo the Father's Glory,' in The Glory and Honor of God: Vol 2 of the Previously Unpublished Sermons of Jonathan Edwards (ed. M. McMullen; 2004), 235
