A Clouded Perspective

Until we are glorified we will continue to be shocked by God’s severity.

After we are glorified we will continue to be shocked by God’s mercy.

However, it will not be God but we who have changed.

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.
