Let’s face it…sin is attractive. Otherwise it wouldn’t be tempting. Sin always portrays itself as something delightful, desirable, alluring, and attractive. The key to victory is seeing beyond the pleasurable possibilities of the moment to the long term; beyond the temporal to the eternal; remembering that what we are after is the hereafter.
