Davidisms: Flee Temptation and Don't Give It a Forwarding Address

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” (Matthew 6:13).

When Jesus taught his disciples to pray, temptation was something he specifically prayed against: “Lead us not into temptation.”

Jesus knew every human being would face temptation. So if temptation is a certainty, what are we to do when tempted?

Flee! Immediately run in the opposite direction. And here’s the key: Don’t leave a forwarding address!

Leave the temptation behind. Forever. Not to be confronted again. God promises us that when we are tempted, he will provide a way out (1 Corinthians 10:13).

When temptation finds you, follow God’s way out.

Flee temptation and don’t give it a forwarding address!
