I'm sure you've seen a dog who runs madly after a ball, catching it and bringing it back only to find that its master has already thrown another one--which the dog feels must be chased. On and on it goes till the dog is totally exhausted and flops down on the ground.

While that's just a fun game to play with a dog, it's not so funny when you play that game with Satan. He gives one temptation and we go tearing out after it only to find that the thrill is short-lived and there's already another one that must be chased.
