Pass the chocolates!

Ever tempted? We are not just talking about taking another chocolate. We are talking about one of the 10 big ones.

St Paul addressed the issue with these words:

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” (I Corinthians 10:13).

A few points:

Do no think your temptations are unique to you; the temptation you are facing has been experienced by many people.

Your temptation is under Divine supervision. God is sure you will be able to say, No, to it.

God will provide a way out it. (A hint – you can help yourself by walking out of the way – God did give you a mind to think!)

Pass the chocolates.
