CQOD: 09/08/07 -- Owen: the nature of temptation
Christian Quotation of the DaySeptember 8, 2007
[Jesus:] Don't you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.' For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what make a man 'unclean'; but eating with unwashed hands does not make him 'unclean.'
-- Matthew 15:17-20 (NIV)
Temptations and occasions put nothing into a man, but only draw out what was in him before.
... John Owen (1616-1683)
Quiet time reflection:
Cleanse me within, O Lord.
