Temptation

But remember this–the wrong desires that come into your life aren’t anything new and different.  Many others have faced exactly the same problems before you.  And no temptation is irresistible.  You can trust God to keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can’t stand up against it, for he has promised this and will do what he says.  He will show you how to escape temptation’s power so that you can bear up patiently against it.    I Corinthians 10:13

 

After reading this, there just isn’t a whole lot I can say.   I think sometimes our problem isn’t that the temptation is so strong, but our own reluctance to walk away from it.  We stand there and consider it too long.  We are entertained by its possibilities.  We need to walk, no, run away from it.
