Spirit tells me that resisting temptation is, or can be
Habit-forming and a source of self-satisfaction,
Unless we resist temptation solely for the sake of
Resisting temptation, in order to receive
Blessings from Heaven. In such a case, He tells me
(as if I didn’t know), no great benefit would be earned.
Pleasures are or can be blessings to ourselves,
As a token of self-love. And, He tells me, we
Would be incapable of loving anyone or
Anything (for those who might consider God as a
Thing) if we cannot, for whatever reason,
Love ourselves, whom God loves dearly.
