Temptation vs. Sin

Temptation only becomes a sin when you give in to it. Martin Luther once said: “You cannot keep birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from building a nest in your hair”

My problem is the fact that I too often fall for the Devil’s argument that one twig does not a nest make.  Nor do two sticks make a nest, nor three… until I have once again been lulled into sin to my shame.
