Watch, Pray, Flee from Temptation

41Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26:41

Flee from temptation.

22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

2 Timothy 2:22

So we see 2 things today about temptations.

Firstly: Watch and pray that ye enter not into temptations.

Watch I liken to being Alert. One needs to be alert. Do not fall into temptations. Pray! What better than to have divine intervention who will intercede for us and guide us. Giving us wisdom.

Secondly: FLEE from temptations in fact. The bible does not says try it. Not consider. Nor talk about it. Nor think about it. Nor even have a second thought about it. FLEE was what the bible says.

Is it something shameful about fleeing from temptations? I guess not in this case since this is a direct commandment from God. How often have we despite the fact knowing that it is a temptations yet we walk straight into it? In fact more like welcoming it. Giving excuses for the temptations.

God helps us.
