I recently saw a reminder that, "There is always free cheese in a mousetrap." There are many temptations in life and some can be hard to resist. However, the outcomes of giving in to temptations are often unpleasant. How do we avoid the temptations that are always around us?
Temptations may be appealing, even if we know we should avoid them. Sometimes it may feel that our bodies react without much thought. We know that temptation is all around. To avoid temptations that lead us away from God, we need to be watchful and prayerful. When we communicate with God through prayer, we can hear His guidance. We can know what to watch out for and how to avoid falling!
Pray to God and follow His guidance to avoid temptation!
Thank You for Your guidance and strength. Help me to know what to look out for and how to avoid temptation. In Jesus name I pray, amen.
