Divorce from Sin

I began reading The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis 
for the second time, last night. 

I’m not even past the first chapter and already my mind is swimming in thought. The one that has been the most resonate is this:

What [worldly possession or success] am I so afraid to lose that I would sacrifice my eternal happiness to keep it?

This thought then directs me to one of my favorite scriptures from a story in the Book of Mormon.
“…and I will give away all my sins to know thee…”

Depending on where I am in life, sometimes this scripture leaves me filled with joy and hope and others abashed by my worldliness. Today, it manages to do both.

Do my actions show how much I really want to know God?
