1 Cor. 10:13 (NLT)
But remember that the temptations that come into your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you can't stand up against it. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it.

Tastiest Treats

James 1:12-16 (NLT)
God blesses the people who patiently endure testing. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. [13] And remember, no one who wants to do wrong should ever say, "God is tempting me." God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else either. [14] Temptation comes from the lure of our own evil desires. [15] These evil desires lead to evil actions, and evil actions lead to death. [16] So don't be misled, my dear brothers and sisters.

The latest fuzzy creature to visit us has been a little field mouse.  As the temperatures outside are getting colder this cute little rodent has found a way inside our home and has enjoyed of all things, our cook book (I guess he likes the delicious pictures).  We found portions of it reduced to confetti like shreds mixed with the sure evidence of a mouse--droppings!  What to do?

The slightest hint of a broken mouse in a mousetrap was out of the question for my animal loving wife, Lisa.  Having to trap and dispose of a live mouse glued to the floor of one of those little mouse motels, out of the question, too.  What to do?....Hire a professional exterminator!

Low an behold the commercial exterminator was scheduled for his regularly contract visit in a few days. Ask the exterminator.  He arrived, Wednesday morning, full of political commentary and conversation as he toured my home with the spray tank at his side and the spray wand swinging about like some famous symphony conductor.  It was Congress this, the Administration that, spray here, spray there.  I finally interrupted, "We have a mouse!"  "No problem, I will get some 'drop bags' after I finish;" the symphony of politics and poison continued unto completion, a masterpiece, never a wand beat or a political point missed.

"What are drop bags?" I asked.  "They are great," he said, "The mouse will think these are the 'tastiest treats' he has ever tasted."  "He will eat and eat and then he will get thirsty and leave your home looking for something more to drink, and the more he drinks, the thirstier he gets until he dies outside in the cold."

WOW, there's a message there!  Many of this life's "tastiest treats" lured us into a life that consumed, but never satisfied us.  The more we consumed, the more we wanted until we, by the grace of God, saw what lay at the end of this path of consumption...our own demise, outside the love, comfort, and protection of our God.

Each of us have our own particular "drop bags;"  they are all equally harmful or fatal to our life here and eternally.  Pray for help each time they are placed in your path.  Then, look for the way through them.

Philip. 4:13 (NLT)
For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need.
