It Prepared Him For A Temptation

Daydreaming Gentleman“let a man setup any sin in delightful contemplation and meditation, that same inward acting of his sin, either actually casts him upon the outward adventures, or invites them. This is the LEAST that it does. It strangely ripens his natural inclination; and, besides that, it PREPARES him for a temptation that suits that way. Satan shall not need to tempt him who has already tempted himself: and he who will work sin in his heart, a weak occasion will draw it out into his life. Thirty pieces of silver will prevail with a covetous Judas , who already had gold as his master in his heart.”

~Obadiah Sedgwick
