James 1:13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. 15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

We all are tempted by something. Most of us know what we’re tempted by. The key is not to put ourselves in situations where we tempt ourselves.

For instance, if we know we’re tempted with pornography, we don’t need to watch movies where there’s a lot of nudity. If we know we’re tempted to gossip, we don’t need to stand around listening to others gossip about someone else. That will tempt us to gossip about that same individual. If we’re tempted to drink in excess, we don’t need to go to events where they’re serving alcohol.

We may think we can handle being in those situations, but why chance it? Know yourself and be responsible and strong enough to remove yourself from that temptation.
