Temptation Quotations

Darkness comes. In the middle of it, the future looks blank. The temptation to quit is huge. Don't. You are in good company... You will argue with yourself that there is no way forward. But with God, nothing is impossible. He has more ropes and ladders and tunnels out of pits than you can conceive. Wait. Pray without ceasing. Hope.
John Piper

Do not worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older it will avoid you.
Joey Adams

Too many Christians have a commitment of convenience. They'll stay faithful as long as it's safe and doesn't involve risk, rejection, or criticism. Instead of standing alone in the face of challenge or temptation, they check to see which way their friends are going.
Charles Stanley

Temptation is the devil looking through the keyhole. Yielding is opening the door and inviting him in.
Billy Sunday

Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
