Temptation is all around us everyday. As human beings, we are all vulnerable to temptations. whys is it so easy for us to give in? I think sometimes we want a life free of complications, free of consequences. We just want to live in the moment.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to be free and happy however we should learn to accept that our actions have consequences and we cannot just do whatever we please. As a grown up, i realize that you cannot "have your cake and eat it." Something has got to give, you have to let go off somethings.
Sometimes, i think i want something and why shouldn't i have it? But that's just being selfish and immature. You usually feel guilty after giving in to temptation and you end up feeling worse instead of better. You just have to keep trying to fight the urge to give in . ( "it is really hard but suck it up")
In the old testament, we discover the amazing story of David, Israel's great King! David faced alot of hardships and opposition from Saul. His life was often in danger but he triumphed in the end becasue he was faithful to God and because he was God's CHOICE!
When God chooses someone for a position in life, you cannot change it. You cannot go against the will of God! Yesterday i was reminded of that in a homily by a young priest in my local church. He also reminded us that envy and jealousy come from thinking that you deserve someone else's position, wealth, beauty, e.t.c.

Lord, help me to accept your will in all things and surrender my l…
Beware of the spirit of anger and mindless rage! We ought to think before we act in anger as the consequences of such actions are often dire and cannot be overturned! Sometimes we are unnecessarily irritable and lash out at others due to no fault of their own or as a means of getting rid of stress!
This is very wrong indeed. Last week i observed it in a close relation of mine as he was driving. He struggles with anger and i pray that God will give him serenity and peace in his heart! How many terrible things have been done just in a fit of anger? Sometimes even to the extent of taking someone's life!
When you are angry, you cannot think clearly and often regret will follow your actions! Let us learn how to pause and walk away from confrontation. Lets also try to hold our tongues and be silent when we feel enraged by someone. If you cannot say something good, its best not to say anything at all! No one should be self righteous in regards to anger, only God has that right.
