There was an old-fashioned church having a revival. One of the ladies in the balcony fell over the edge of the balcony while worshipping. She hung on the edge of the balcony upside down screaming for help. The pastor cried out, "There is a lady hanging upside down from the balcony. If any man looks at her...God will strike him blind!" About that time, an old fellow in the back of the church leaned over to his friend and said, "I THINK I’M GONNA RISK ONE EYE!"

You have to know what direction you are going before the battle of temptation comes. You have to sell out. You can’t even risk one eye!
