Day 27 - June 2, 2012

What are you tempted by?

Unless you are a super-Christian, I am sure you will be tempted by something today.  I will be.   Solomon listed a few things that may taunt us in Proverbs 6:

There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:  haughty eyes,  a lying tongue,   hands that shed innocent blood,  a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil,  a false witness who pours out lies  and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

And Paul mentions a few in Galatians 5

The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;  idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions  and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

These were both written over 2,000 years ago and yet the temptations haven’t changed much.  Temptations are a way for the Evil One to get a foothold in our lives.  When temptations come, PRAY.

Blessings,

Pastor David
