Meaning of temptation

Temptation is the strong desire to do something that is wrong. It is the encouragement to do evil and commit sin. Temptations in itself is not sin but when we obey that strong desire to do what is evil then we have sinned. But at all times, God has provided a way out of our temptations.

  1. Selfishness: we are tempted when we all want all things for ourselves.
  2. Pride: feeling important than others can lead to temptations
  3. Love of money and other material things of the world.
  4. Unemployment: lack of job can lead one into stealing and other corrupt practices
  5. Keeping bad company: when you keep bad friends, you stand the risk of being tempted
  6. Drug abuse: when a person abuses drugs excessively, they lose their mind, self-control and commit crimes.
