Take heed

“Let him who thinks he stands, take heed lest he fall” (1 Corinthians 10:12).  Part of God’s wisdom in having me pray daily about sin and temptation is to remind me of my weakness.    The Israelites at Ai thought that the victory at Jericho would make the next battle easier, that somehow they would get stronger and stronger as they went along.  Christians, sometime, think that years of faithfulness to God will  take away the danger of real failure toward God.   The truth is that all of us are still vulnerable and always will be.  The longer I follow, the more I realize that “no good thing dwells in me” and that I can never grow overconfident about my desperate weakness and daily need for his guidance and protection.  Lord, lead me not into temptation!
