Point To Ponder

What tempts us. In The Lord’s prayer, we ask The Father, not to lead us in temptation. But what does tempt us, does a simple piece of cake tempt us.. The problem is not the cake, it is our love for the cake.

It is the same way with temptation to do wrong, It is not what we are tempted by is to blame. It is more the fact that we were attracted to it. Temptation is an attribute given to us by God, we were created in the image of God, and Jesus was tempted, but He did not allow Himself to fall to the temptation.

So temptation is actually a good gift given to us by God. By resisting temptation like Jesus did, and doing what is right, we not only honor Him, but we also become more like Him, and a stronger and better person.

God Bless.
