Need a little encouragement in the middle of your week? Start your Wednesday's off right, renew your spirit and refresh your soul.
Only good comes from God. When the world wants to blame Him for the bad choices people make, we can be reminded by James's words. We are all tempted, but that temptation leads way to a choice. That choice is ultimately left up to us. We get to decide which way we tiptoe towards. Do we give in when we are enticed, or do we lean into God for the strength to withstand? Temptation is dangerous, but character is built on the ability to stand firm. On the contrary, when we give way to temptation and sin takes hold, we are left with another choice. Do we continue to sin, or do we learn from it? Do we allow that sin to drive a wedge between us and God and lead us down the path to death. Is it worth a future that is not with God in Heaven?
