So Subtle

15 03 2010

Someone said recently that when temptation came his way, he felt he owed it to himself; he’d worked hard, was entitled to this. He thought he was exempt from the rules.

I’m like that. I say that God is my everything and deserves my all, yet my actions reveal that I want the best of my time and resources for myself. I use them first in case God spoils my fun. I’d never admit to that at the time – there’s always a good excuse, extreme circumstances, external pressures – which really just expose deep desires of a hard heart.

Eve succumbed to the devil’s lie and mankind has been toppling in after her ever since. She should have run for her life. So should we.
