12/01/2018 — 1 Corinthians Chapters 9-11

Scripture provides guidance and there are some that speak personally to each of us.  I find myself often silently quoting the following “in my mind” — I call it finding the “back-door” away from temptation:

1 Corinthians 10:  1So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! 13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it
