Matthew 4: 1-11
Since it’s the 1st day of Lent, this gospel is all about temptations. I say temptation is a risky habit. Why? It is Satan who tempted us to sin and we should never be enticed to it. I mean, I really hate Satan and yet there are times when I get tempted like spending hours in the internet rather than studying. That’s what I really don’t like about myself! I honestly have the tendency to get tempted so easily. I mean it’s really hard to be like Jesus. Why? He said “NO” to Satan for tempting Him for turning the stones into bread because Jesus was hungry and yet He has the guts to say “NO” to that said temptation. To this day of Lent, I hope I won’t be tempted and always pray for contrition whenever I have sinned. I’ll try my best to do good in Lent and try to sacrifice the things that I easily get tempted with. But I hope sacrificing will help me learn a lesson during the Lenten Season. Because Jesus is always watching us in everything we do. And nobody’s perfect since we also sinned and get into temptations that easily. I just hope that my temptations wouldn’t be a hindrance to my grades in school. I really study hard and do my best when I am entering Senior life this school year of 2011-2012.
