Remember from where all sin begins

Puritan pastor and theologian John Owen in Overcoming Sin and Temptation (~1658)

“It is sad to find most people so careless about [the danger of temptation].  Most people think about how to avoid open sin, but they never think about the dynamics of temptation within their hearts.
…Let no one fear sin without also fearing temptation.  They are too closely allied to be separated.

…He hates not the fruit, who delights in the root.”
