Avoid Temptation

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Matthew 18:7. “Woe to the world for temptations to sin! For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the one by whom the temptation comes!

We are responsible to know what tempts us. When we know we are to avoid it. If alcohol is our temptation we stay away from any place that has it. If gambling is our temptation we don’t go places that gamble. If gossip is our temptation we politely excuse ourselves from those who gossip. The things that tempt us are to be replaced with what is in accordance with God’s Word. When temptation pushes hard we have others in God’s family who can help and encourage us. Let us yield to God instead of temptations.
