Word Of The Day: Temptation

Temptation. It's crazy what temptation can make us do. It calls our name, singing to us like a siren. Whenever I'm feeling attacked, I turn to one of my favorite scriptures. 1 Corinthians 10:13. This verse gives me hope in a hopeless situation. "No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." When we are tempted...if we are not careful it can lead to sin. We can find solace knowing that God will never ever put us in a situation that we cannot handle. It's important to look to Him when temptation arises, because as imperfect humans, it is difficult to overcome it on our own. However, God will always provide an escape route so that we don't succumb to temptation.
