A good person never gives in to temptation. I don’t think there’s anybody on the planet who lives that way.
When temptation wins, you lose. Any temptation you don’t overcome, overcomes you.
Wrongful desire is temptation. It’s not identification. Desire doesn’t make you a thief or a cheater. Behavior does.
Some inclinations come from free will; some from the appeal of evil; and some from God. It’s important to recognize the difference.
Temptations loudly proclaim pleasure and partying while hiding the misery they’re carrying. People who resist temptations are often ridiculed by those who wallow in them, but surrendering to temptation is nothing to boast about.
When impure thoughts are allowed to linger in your mind, they work on establishing permanent residence there. The more you surrender to tempting desires, the more control they gain over your life. If you let a temptation entertain you, you’ll enjoy it a short while, but eventually it will slam you into the ground.
If you can’t state your point without unkindness, anger, or profanity, there’s a good chance you’re feeling insecure about it. If that’s the case, perhaps humility can help.
