Satan is a terrible taskmaster. Here’s a helpful quotation which summarizes his deceit: ‘He promises the best, but pays with the worst; he promises honour and pays with disgrace; he promises pleasure and pays with pain; he promises profit and pays with loss; he promises life and pays with death’ (Thomas Brooks).

‘Temptations are certain to ring your doorbell; but it’s your own fault if you ask them to stay for dinner!’
