Temptation…

Blessed is anyone who endures temptation. Such a one has stood the test and will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. No one, when tempted, should say, ‘I am being tempted by God’; for God cannot be tempted by evil and he himself tempts no one. But one is tempted by one’s own desire, being lured and enticed by it; then, when that desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and that sin, when it is fully grown, gives birth to death. Do not be deceived, my beloved. (James 1:12-16, NRSV)

We see something we want and we go for it…

Everything is good, but not everything is good for us. We need to do the things that God wants us to do and not be led astray by our own wanton desires and needs. We are given the power to overcome any and all evil the assails us because He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world.

So don’t be fooled by shiny packages or promises of fame or desires met, hold fast to what God has given us and know He will always be with us to help us through wherever we take ourselves!
