“If we are tempted by such trials, we must not say, “This temptation comes from God.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one.”
James 1:13 GNT
Temptation is the desire to engage in short-term urges for pleasure that may threaten long-term goals. In some religions, temptation is the inclination to sin. This desire may result from coaxing someone into committing such an act, by manipulation.
Everyday I am tempted by something and often I succumb to the urge and often it leaves me feeling empty and sad. To me, this is life’s greatest struggle. Intellectually I know the right answer, but sometimes my spirit becomes self centered and forgets to stay aligned with The Spirit.
