Resist Temptation

1 Corinthians 10:13 (New International Version)
13No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
Each day temptations come our way. Some are not too harmful and others have the ability to destroy your life if you give in. In this picture I am sure this dog is tempted to jump on the skunk but he is resisting the temptation to do so. If you are dieting and see a piece of cake that looks delicious you must remind yourself what passes the lips goes to the hips. Sometimes we are tempted to gossip. To spread some story we don't even know is true and even if it were there is really no good reason to share it if it will harm others. Satan knows where our weaknesses are and for each of us they are different. The progression to sin is often a slow process of thinking about the sin until we yield to it. Listen to this insightful song today about how we slowly fade into doing something we know we should not. resist the devil and he will flee from you.
