It’s not wrong to be tempted. Seriously, there is nothing wrong with being lured. We dwell in a fast paced society where we a stretched in a million different directions with each one seeking our attention. Temptation is everywhere and abundant. Nevertheless, there is a difference in being tempted and facing temptation. All of us will be tempted at some stage in our lives. Jesus himself was tempted by Satan. This alone shows us that being tempted is part of everyone’s life, but how we face it is the crucial element. Going to the heart of the matter, it becomes wrong when we give in to the temptation and do something we know isn’t right.
You could die before you finish reading this. I could die while you’re reading it. Today. At any moment.
On the average day, we live caught up in ourselves. On the average day, we don’t consider God very much. On the average day, we forget that our life truly is a vapor.
Something different. I have often talked about the power and importance of prayer, knowing God. What if I said, “Stop praying”? What if I told you to stop talking at God for a while, but instead to take a long, hard look at Him before you speak another word? Solomon warned us not to rush into God’s presence with words. Many of us are guilty of this. I for one am. Many times i have rushed into prayer and did not know what to say.
