Temptation | March 8
… let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is
faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able,
but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be
able to bear it.
Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual
restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you
also be tempted.
1 Corinthians 10:12-13, Galatians 6:1
Help us today, we pray, to simply turn away from temptation. To yield is to
become a victim and to flee from its grasp is Your stated will. You know
that we can not even watch the media without titillating ads or immoral
messages bombarding our home.
Put Your hand, we pray, against those who conspire to ruin the moral fiber
of our country and who prey upon the lower nature present in all of us.
Guide us in paths of righteousness and give us the resolve to look for
alternatives, we pray.
When we or a loved one fails, momentarily we pray, help us remember how You
have forgiven each of us and that we must be prepared to forgive others. In
Jesus Holy name, we pray, amen.
