We can conquer temptations

Is it bad if we find ourselves tempted by sin? Does the very fact that evil is presenting itself to us indicate a lack of spiritual maturity or goodness on our part? If we are truly attempting to live a life of goodness and spirituality, does that make us immune from those temptations even presenting themselves to us?

To be confronted with sinful suggestions can be frustrating, especially to someone striving earnestly to keep his thoughts genuinely good and free from harmful influences. There was a time when I wanted a satisfying answer to the above questions about the nature of temptation. As I prayed to God for an answer, an insight came to me through an unusual source—baseball—and that insight eventually blossomed into ideas on how to deal more effectively with temptation.

We'd love to hear from you!
