We moved on to temptation in our look at James last Sunday in church. My failure to resist temptation is a frequent cause for crossness, so this is a topic which is close to my heart!
I have always found temptation to be both clichéd and predictable and this makes it so much more galling when I succumb. To be frank, the temptations that catch me out are seldom novel or original.
However, we are all tempted, even Jesus was tempted, and the temptations we face range from the small and seemingly trivial to the monstrous, from the white lie to the serious crime.
