TEMPTATION...means Enticement, Forbidden Fruit, Allure, Bait, Desire... and I love this story on temptation. “There is a story told about a little boy in a grocery store that I think illustrates the nature of TEMPTATION. The boy was standing near an open box of peanut butter cookies. “Now then, young man,” said the grocer as he approached the young man. “What are you up to?” “Nothing,” replied the boy: “Nothing.” “Well it looks to me like you were trying to take a cookie.” The boy replied... “YOU’RE WRONG, MISTER, I’M TRYING NOT TO!” Oh my Satan's ugly TEMPTATION!!!” The Devil always lurks in the shadows, watching, waiting for the next vulnerable moment...but Satan cannot make us do anything. So what are we to do? We call on our Lord for help and protection. JESUS IS LORD...HE IS SAVIOR...AND PRAISE GOD THROUGH THE HOLY GHOST AND HIS POWER AND FIRE...HE IS OUR PROTECTOR!
