Do you know what the basic temptation is?
A thousand persons seem to have a thousand different temptations.
Yet there is but one temptation in the whole world.
The enemy has but one temptation, and that is, to bestir the saints.
Satan does not tempt you so that you lose your temper, become proud or greedy or adulterous.
He simply tempts you to bestir yourself.
If only he succeeds in bestirring you TO DO SOMETHING, he gains the victory.
