Protecting Yourself

God promised that when it comes to temptation, He has provided “the way of escape” (1 Corinthians 10:13). But even before you get to the point when you are tempted, there are measures you can take to protect yourself from falling into sin.

  1. Read, listen to, and obey God’s Word, which helps you to discern right from wrong.
  2. Avoid places and situations where you might experience temptation.
  3. Avoid getting involved with people who might pressure you to participate in sin.
  4. Avoid “the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life” (1 John 2:16 NKJV).

Providing temptation with fewer opportunities to strike is a great way to protect and preserve yourself.

Heavenly Father, lead me not into temptation today. Help me make smart choices about where I go, what I fill my mind with, and whom I spend my time with. Amen.
