“The most ravishing pleasures, the most solid and substantial delights that human nature is capable of, are those which arise from the endearments of a well-placed and successful affection.
And when the pleasures of a “well-placed” affection are unsurpassed, it’s excellency is revealed. For the excellency of a soul is to be measured by the object of its love.
Without doubt, for human beings the affection of love is “well-placed” when placed in God.”
– John Piper (ThePleasuresOfGod)
