Murdering morsels of sin

In Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices Thomas Brooks has a wonderfully descriptive  challenge to consider sin as a bitter-sweet. Here is a snippet:

“Many long to be meddling with the murdering morsels of sin, which nourish not, but rend and consume the belly, the soul that receives them. Many eat that on earth that they digest in hell. Sin’s murdering morsels will deceive those that devour them. Adam’s apple was bitter sweet . . . Jonathan’s honey was bitter sweet . . . After the meal is ended, then comes the reckoning. Men must not think to dance and dine with the devil, and then to sup with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.”
