Sin is a Bully

In his book Fuzzy Memories, Jack Handey writes:

“There used to be this bully who would demand my lunch money every day. Since I was smaller, I would give it to him. Then I decided to fight back. I started taking karate lessons. But then the karate lesson guy said I had to start paying him five dollars a lesson. So I just went back to paying the bully.”

Too many people feel it is easier just to pay the bully than it is to learn how to defeat him.
