No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
These words today speak clearly to me. It is not that I am incapable of resisting temptation, and it is not that there is no choice other than to give in. God created each and every one of us equipped and capable of making the right choice. My job is to find that way out and to take that path before my emotions take hold.
Father God, You created me in your image, capable of many good things, and with a free will. Help me, Lord, to see the right path and the right way. Help me to make the right choice. Amen
