Think the only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it? There's a far better way.
“No one can ask honestly or happily to be delivered from temptation unless he has
honestly and firmly determined to do the best he can to keep out of it.”
- John Ruskin
Is your future for sale? What would you eat in exchange for your soul?
You may be tempted to act impulsively to satisfy insistent appetites.
Stop to consider long-range effects before gobbling sinful morsels.
Old-world forbidden fruit tastes good, but has a bitter aftertaste.
Ordering from Satan’s menu is invariably asking for trouble.
With God’s help, Resist impulse buying in hell’s cafeteria.
Every temptation you resist will prove to be a victory.
Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and lentil stew.
Esau ate and drank and went on about his business,
indifferent to the fact that he had given up his birthright.
Genesis 25:34 NLT
