Lead Us Not Into Temptation


Temptation always rears its ugly head,


It’s a part of life.


You’re constantly being prompted and probed


By desires, pride, ambition, passion, ego.


Even by fear and insecurity.


And every single moment you’re at a crossroads


And every single opportunity is a fork in the road.


Your choices in these moments are the rudders which either lead you home or lead you astray.


And it's never easy, because temptation is seductive, it often feels so good.


It’s that little voice inside your head that tells you to throw caution to the wind.


Surrender it tells you, just let go.


Whispering in your ear, what’s the worst that can happen?


You only live once!


It’s very subtle.


And unaware, you succumb to one small temptation after another, until you slowly drift away from the shore


And only when it’s too late do you begin to realise that you may have lost your way.
