THE SEASON OF LENT

Being tempted does not make you a bad person. The Bible acknowledges that we all experience temptation. (1 Corinthians 10:13). What really matters is how we act when tempted. Some dwell on the improper desire and sooner or later give in to it. Others promptly dismiss it as wrong. “Each one of us is tried (tested) by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire.”​—James 1:14. HOW THE BIBLE CAN HELP ? Just as our mind can feed improper desires, it can also snuff them out. How? By our focusing on something else​—an activity, a conversation with a friend, or a wholesome thought. (Philippians 4:8) It is also helpful to reflect on the consequences of giving in to a temptation, which may include emotional, physical, or spiritual harm. (Deuteronomy 32:29). Prayer too can be a big help. Jesus Christ said: “Pray continually, so that you may not enter into temptation.” ​—Matthew 26:41.
