There are many young ladies and men who are going through a tough time with temptation. Many seek attention or the attention comes towards them on its own very aggressively. Rather you or young or old, it happens that way. Some of us who have gone through the fire should express to these young ladies and men that they are worth waiting for. There is a reason why virginity should be sealed until marriage and why one should wait on God’s timing for the right one. There is the stress of dealing promiscuity, possibility of STD’s, unwanted pregnancy, children having different mothers and fathers, lack of commitment, insecurity stemming from a partner’s past, divorce, much drama and much heartache. Temptation can be difficult for the young generation as well as the old generation. God’s help is a necessity. It is a necessity because the “sweet lies” are so pleasing to the ear. The “sweet lies” embeds in thoughts and before long, they trickle to the heart which makes it hard to fight temptation or to let go of what one holds on to. Media doesn’t make it any better because all that is trending has to do with the latest sexy fashions, money, sex/porn and every other thing that can consume one’s mind in an addictive way. Many of us know the detriment resulting when the line is crossed without God’s consent. We know the temptation, the pain and the consequences. If you come across someone, young or old, who haven’t crossed that line yet, encourage them and pray for them. The world needs more of that. Be Blessed. – S.L.M.
