Provision For The Flesh

Just before Lent the Roman Catholics have what they call the time of carnival, which literally means the solace of the flesh. If they must fast during Lent the flesh must have special license beforehand. Solacing the flesh is not confined to Romanists. We are warned to make no provision for the flesh. If we live in the flesh the flesh will make provision for itself; if we live in the Spirit the lusts of the flesh will be crucified.
