• “A woman can become a blessing to many (even to the one who harms her) through what she has learnt of God in her sorrows! To become a woman of God, one must be prepared to face many trials. Like the sandalwood tree that imparts its fragrance to the axe that cuts it.” – Dr. Annie poonen

Sin Will Disappoint You by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/05/12

“I thought that by taking our relationship to another level, you know, physically, my boyfriend and I would be closer. But sleeping together has just caused more problems—a lot more!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We think wrong choices will make us happy, but sin never pays what it promises us. It might yield some pleasure, but Hebrews 11 refers to it as “fleeting pleasure.”

“I thought I’d be the life of the party. Now I’m spending all my time in a recovery program.”

Nancy: We all know what it’s like to sinfully indulge our flesh, hoping for some kind of relief or emotional thrill. But when it’s over, we don’t usually look back and say, “Wow, that was sure worth it!” If we’re honest we’d have to say, “That brief pleasure wasn’t worth the price I paid to get it.”

Sinful pleasures just don’t last. We need to remember that when we face temptation. Instead, trust God’s Word when He promises to reward faithfulness.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
