This quote by Susanna Wesley, mama to John and Charles Wesley, well known preachers.
"How would you judge the lawfulness or unlawfulness of "pleasure?"
Use this rule:
Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sight of God, takes from you your thirst for spiritual things or increases the authority of your body over your mind, then that thing to you is evil.
By this test you may detect evil no matter how subtly or how plausibly temptation may be presented to you.”
¯ Susanna Wesley
I have contemplated this quote quite often and look forward to meeting this amazing woman, who endured more in her lifetime than I can ever imagine facing...
I hope it helps you in your walk, too
Grace and peace to us all!
