First Sunday of Lent

Temptations of Christ
bodily pleasure vs self control
worldly power vs humility
greed vs generosity

Christ endured temptations to teach us how we ought to fight them. Temptations are not sinful. During our entire life we are tempted by others, evil powers and ourselves to seek our will rather than God’s will. It is in the very act of struggling with a temptation when we turn to God’s grace and seek his divine assistance that we realise how vulnerable we are and in daily need of his strength. Once the battle is over and we have not succumbed then we are often stronger and more resilient within – for grace has forged a path of virtue.
