When we think of being tempted we think of doing things wrong that is sinning against God. Of course that is true, and we need to Armor Up daily to fight off the willy temptations of the devil what other types of temptations are running about especially with the COVID-19 situation? How about:
Anger – maybe you have been to that store 3 times for TP and they are out every time
Anxiety – some folks get panic attack for many different reasons a world wide pandemic is probably one to set them off
Depression – as more and more areas have issued “Shelter in Place” orders those not used to being “locked up” will become susceptible to depression
Slothfulness or Laziness – as more Americans are laid off laziness is often the by product
Resentment – my neighbor still has a job why not me I have bills to pay too
The “GOOD NEWS” is that there is a cure for all these temptations and the cure is Christ. Trust in HIM and HIM alone as not only your Savior equally important LORD of your Life. Christ is able to sustain us through all life’s trials and temptations Psalm 55:22.
