James 1:12-16

Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, not does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.

Then when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.



Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

When Jesus fasted and prayed in the wilderness for forty days, He was tempted by the devil. It is hard to imagine how weak and weary He must have been after that length of time, yet He resisted the lures that Satan offered Him.

Temptations are sure to come. When we are at some weak point in our lives, that is the time to beware, for Satan is sure to cast his line in an attempt to draw us away from our calling.

Our reward for resisting temptation is the crown of life!

God Bless You!

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. Which two servants of Pharaoh's were imprisoned along with Joseph?

A. butler and baker


It came to pass after these things that the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt offended their lord, the king of Egypt.

And Pharaoh was angry with his two officers, the chief butler and the chief baker. So he put them in custody in the house of the captain of the guard, in the prison, the place where Joseph was confined.

Genesis 40:1-3

One cannot help but wonder what these two men of elevated positions in Pharaoh's staff did to deserve imprisonment. He may have been a difficult person to please.
