While memorizing this, I was thinking how almost everything that isn’t good for us comes with a “temptation” factor, and those things that are good do not. For example if I have a choice between an apple and a chocolate bar, I might like apples but the bottom line is that the chocolate bar is “tempting.” If we see someone very attractive of the opposite gender and someone very plain, the plain one doesn’t mess with our thoughts, minds and emotions, it’s the attractive one. Almost in all of life, we must be aware of those things that come with an intrinsic attraction. For within that attraction is great power – both for good and for evil.
