Nicholas slowed down and began to jog in place as he waited at the intersection to go. Just as the light turned green, a young pretty woman started jogging in front of him and now he followed her. As he jogged behind her, he couldn't help but notice how pretty she looked. He kept looking at her and now was shaking his head. He was married and shouldn't be looking at her like that. The more he looked at her, bad thoughts came into his head.
" What are you doing Nicholas?".
He turned to his left to see the Creator, wearing workout clothes and a ballcap, was jogging right next to him.
" Jogging and to be honest having bad thoughts".
" Those bad thoughts are you being tempted by my adversary" he said as he slowed down because they were coming up to another intersection.
" How do I resist these temptations?".
" First of all, don't resist the temptation but turn your attention to something else".
