TEMPTATION

Leave a comment

Lord, the kitchen of our building
in this retirement community
is now renovated.
During the renovation
our menu was limited to three entrées.
Now we are back to many choices.
Several desserts are offered
with each meal.
When I cooked
we didn’t always have dessert.
The food here is so good, Lord,
and we thank you for it,
but give us the strength to resist
the temptation to eat too much.

I Corinthians 10:13: KJV
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
