Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

The droplets of rain on the web
are dazzling, are they not?
It is very tempting to linger for awhile,
and even get a closer look... blinded,
as it were, by the sparkling display.

"A silly idea is current
that good people do not know
what temptation means.
This is an obvious lie.
Only those who try to resist temptation
know how strong it is...
A man who gives in to temptation
after five minutes
simply does not know
what it would have been like an hour later.
That is why bad people, in one sense,
know very little about badness.
They have lived a sheltered life
by always giving in."

- C.S. Lewis
(Mere Christianity)
