“…And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”
Everywhere you look, images, literature, and electronic media vie for your attention, hoping to influence you to buy a product or indulge in a service; the fact of the matter is the same thing is happening spiritually. Our spirits are constantly being tempted to indulge in self-centered behavior. Though it might seem that these temptations are from outside evils, more often than not it’s our own sin nature doing the tempting. We need to be delivered from these evil thoughts and be led away from our own self-interest. God is the one who does this. So, the next time you’re feeling tempted, turn to the Father, and He will lead you away.
