When to resist temptation, and when not to

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.
