The gospel last Sunday talked about how Satan attempted to lure Jesus with food, wealth, power ….. and at a time when Jesus was already weak from fasting for 40 days. But Jesus is the Son of God while we, humans, are more prone to temptation and corruption of the mind, the senses, physically, mentally, spiritually. Everyday, temptations come through the form of gluttony, greed, pride, lust, etc. They come in the form of billboard ads, tv, radio, text messages, email, through our classmates and other people we meet.
But if from the moment we open our eyes in the morning, we say our prayers, give thanks to the Lord for another day, and anchor our day on God’s love for us, I feel like I am enveloped with God’s white light of protection from harm, from evil, from temptation ….. I think positive thoughts and i am reminded of Gods grace, and His love and from then on I know that I am a child of God, the Most High.
Then with the Lord’s Prayer: Give us this day our daily bread ….. and lead us not into temptation, I am assured that my day will turn out alright and that with His guidance, things will turn out fine.
