The Pleasant Lounge

Satan says, “Are ye not hungry? Thirsty? Are ye not weary? Would ye not rather lie about in the pleasant lounge?” I had to Google that one. Satan quotes Swiss theologian Ulrich Luz: “In the pleasant lounge, the hope of the Kingdom cannot be understood.” Satan does not want any Kingdom building on his watch. I try to stay focused but some days I fall prey and spend my time loafing about in the pleasant lounge. I am getting better, though, and I am getting wise to Satan’s tricks. It’s never easy. There’s never a moment’s rest in the wilderness.
