“Lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.” Hebrews 3:13

Does sin present itself? Turn away from it with loathing and prayer. Give it not a look, lest it ensnares you. Will you give way to sin because it is delightful or because it is pardonable? Who loves poison because it is sweet? Or who drinks poison because he may have an antidote? 

I have a gracious God. Shall I risk His favor for a sin? Lord, give me grace to resist sin. Give me victory over it. Let me always reject that for the indulgence of which I am sure to lose my peace. O to look at sin as the abominable thing which God hates!

Sin has a thousand treacherous arts
To practice on the mind
With flattering looks she tempts our hearts
But leaves a sting behind.

With names of virtue she deceives
The aged and the young
And while the heedless wretch believes
She makes his fetters strong.

Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (16901774)
