A Thought: A “Tease.”

The weather forecaster just shared the weather is going to become cooler in the next seven days. Perhaps, this is a ‘tease’ of a taste of autumn to come! Everyday we are ‘teased’ by a temptation to enter into a conversation that is probably not helpful; a habit that is probably not healthy; or a task that is most likely not as productive as it should be. How do we resist the ‘tease?’
Ask yourself: Is this helpful; kind; truthful; and necessary? If there is a “no” to any of these, then, you have your answer as to whether you should participate. Seek the Lord in prayer for strength to resist ‘the tease.’

James 3:10 “Out of your mouth comes both blessing and cursing. My friends, this should not be.”
