Don’t Succumb To Temptation

It’s easy to get tempted. Temptation is something we battle with every day, most times unconsciously. We can be tempted to stay in bed, skip a workout, eat unhealthily, disobey rules or authority, procrastinate, spend above our means, do something morally wrong, etc. The list is endless.

I don’t know anyone that has never been tempted before. Sometimes, even when we know that what’s behind a door is chaos, we end up opening it. The key is to try to resist temptation as much as possible as we live our daily lives.

I love timely reminders, and I wrote the list below to remind us not to succumb to temptation.

You will be tempted to lie
You will be tempted to cheat
You will be tempted to boast
You will be tempted to compare

You will be tempted to fight
You will be tempted to stray
You will be tempted to scorn
You will be tempted to scorn

You will be tempted to stall
You will be tempted to doubt
You will be tempted to neglect
You will be tempted to despair

You will be tempted to quit
You will be tempted to stop
You will be tempted to drown
You will be tempted to settle

Don’t do it!
