The Apostle Paul tells us in his letter to the Corinthians… in, 1 Corinthians 10:11-13
Now these things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come. So the one who thinks he is standing firm should be careful not to fall. No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. 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 an escape, so that you can stand up under it.…
Remember, though, while God will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear… He ‘also gave us FREE-WILL’ which means that when we KNOW that we are about to enter a sinful state, and do it anyway… then, we have CHOSEN to fulfill the temptation. In other words… it’s our ‘own fault.’ We are responsible. Being STUPID is a CHOICE.
Temptations, both good and bad… come to us from every imaginable circumstance, and should not be thought to be just in the spiritual arena. The devil is at work in every aspect of our life… business, social, family, and yes… SPIRITUAL. Be aware!
… Blessings to all… as we seek to do God’s will… not our own. …cjlb…3/2/2018
