Different Temptations

Years ago a doctor was preparing to go to a medical conference in Las Vegas. As he was packing his suitcase, his wife came into the room and said, “Honey, I know that there will be a lot of temptations in Las Vegas. I just hope that you don’t do anything that we can’t talk about when you get home.”

Twenty years later, the same doctor was once again preparing to attend a medical conference in Las Vegas. Once again, as he was packing his suitcase, his wife came into the room to give him some advice. She said, “Honey, I know that there will be a lot of temptations in Las Vegas. I just hope that you don’t eat anything that will upset your stomach.”

Our temptations may change over time, but we always need to be diligent about resisting them.

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”—James 4:7
