Fresh Friday Quote: Russell Moore

Each Friday I will share a quote I appreciate. It might be long or short. It might be funny or thought provoking.

“Temptation begins with an illusion about the self – a skewed vision of who you are. The satanic powers don’t care if your illusion is one of personal grandiosity or of self-loathing, as long as you see your current circumstance, rather than the gospel, as the eternal statement of who you are. If the poor sees his poverty as making it impossible for him to have dignity, he is fallen. If the rich sees his wealth as a denial that ‘like a flower of the grass he will pass away,’ even ‘in the midst of his pursuits’ (James 1:10-11), then he is undone.”

Russell Moore, Tempted and Tried, pages 28-29
