Oh my, how I longed to bunk work today! My book draft has come in from the publisher and there is so much work to be done with that. The little devil on my shoulder said, "call in sick and spend the day at home and do the work". My conscience just could not do it though as the right thing to do is to book a days leave.
It really isn't easy to do the right thing all the time and that is why temptation is one of the Devil's most powerful tools! The Devil's other favourite tool is discouragement! When you put discouragement and temptation together the result is often explosive!
It is our nature to justify our actions when temptation comes, but James 1:12 tells us what the right thing is to do: “Blessed is the man that endures temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them that love Him.”
Living a life of integrity can be really difficult at times but God promises us that there will be rewards to our faithfulness and honesty if we choose to focus on Him and walk the path that he has asked us to walk.
