Temptations to which I am not exposed!

“Ever since I served as an infantryman in the First World War I have had a great dislike of people who, themselves in ease and safety, issue exhortations to men in the front line. As a result I have a reluctance to say much about the temptations to which I am not exposed…. I did not think it my place to take a firm line about pains, dangers and expenses from which I am protected.”

(C.S.Lewis, Mere Christianity, Preface)


  1. When you’ve experienced it – you speak with special conviction – otherwise it is ingenuine – unless you declare it – I don’t know – how can I then encourage? By listening!
