Empire building

#537 #allthatglittersisnotgold #empirebuilding #powerhungry I was thinking about #temptation with a group this evening – what are you tempted by? How do you deal with it? Is temptation something we should always avoid? 

What’s in the box?

#527 #excitingprop for a #trainingsession I’ve been preparing for…what are your first thoughts when you look at it? What do you think is inside? Would you be tempted to delve further into the box? #temptation #matthew4v1to11 

Lead us not into temptation 

#415 #day27 of placement was about writing a sermon for Sunday around the topic of “Lead us not into temptation”. There was so much that I could have focused on with that. Rather than focusing on what we feel tempted by, I chose to look at temptation as more of an attitude of #turningaway from God. Praying that we not be led into temptation each day is about a #re-turning back to God, possibly against the human default position. Any thoughts?
