Tempted to sin

image

Outside of one of my stops today I found this abomination. While I realize that today it is a little cold out and that tonight there is a frost warning, having this… thing… out in the open is going too far. Kinda like a duck call is used to lure ducks to their doom this thing calls the little white invaders down upon us. It is for some provocative. Those individuals who crave the snow and as I wrote in a blog a few months back snow is just like temptation.
This shovel and what it represents reminded me of what Paul wrote in Romans 5:20 “Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound”. Temptation to sin is all around us. Be it how someone dresses to certain types of drinks to even food, and many many others. The temptation that works best on you may not effect me at all and vice versa. Let us be nice however to each other and not bring temptation along with us knowing that it might trip someone else up. Put the shovel away and bask in the Son.
