Temptation

CAPE ARGUS – 1939, February 20
Lines from Sunday’s sermon

“All students of human character have observed that there is a backwater of temptation which is more deadly than direct assault. You may fight hard against temptation and fight victoriously; you may beat it off and crush it down, and then, weary with the conflict, you suffer the strain of vigilance to relax, and it steals in and masters the citadel which lately it spent all its force in trying to win. Beware of your best moments as well as of your worst.” – The Rev. R. W, Wighton, Baptist Church, Observatory.
