From today's reading (James 1:12-18):
'Everyone who is tempted is attracted and seduced by his own wrong desire. Then the desire conceives and gives birth to sin, and when sin is fully grown, it too has a child, and the child is death.'
This is quite a chilling passage!
The lesson is to resist temptation; much like Jesus did when he was tempted by the devil.
Perhaps it is worth just reading this passage over and over for a minute or so, just to let it sink in; to absorb it. It's hard hitting stuff but it is the Word of God and must be taken seriously.
Read it over. What message can you take from it, especially when you consider that Lent is just around the corner?
