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.
God always provides a way out. There is a good way to handle any temptation, and if I remember that, I can look for that better way. I have done some thoughtless things in my life, and at the time did not worry much about the fallout. Those times are long past, and I have grown (much) older. But I still feel badly about them. I know I can learn from my past, and as time marches on, I can continue to learn from God. There are kind and thoughtful ways around any sticky situation. I pray to God to help me to be less selfish, more thoughtful and more protective of others’ feelings. Amen
