Repent and resist temptation.
We are faced with hundreds of choices each day. And every choice has a consequence. Temptation is a choice that we know is wrong or unwise.
Satan tempted the human side of Jesus to turn Him away from the will of God. Jesus made a conscious decision to resist (to NOT choose) these temptations. He looked to His Father for the strength to carry out that decision.
We, too, must rely on God for the strength we need. When we do not resist temptation, we are actively choosing to move away from God.
Lent is a time for us to take a good look at what's going on in our lives. Have we been choosing temptations? Have we blamed our poor choices on others or on circumstances instead of acknowledging our own weakness and repenting? Let's use this time to start turning things around. God is there, just waiting to help. All we have to do is repent of our wrong doings and go to Him.
