A Fair Warning

We all fee temptations big and small. And it's easy during challenging times to give in, and justify it. But Paul has an important reminder for us:

"Remember our history, friends, and be warned. All our ancestors were led by the providential Cloud and taken miraculously through the Sea. They went through the waters, in a baptism like ours, as Moses led them from enslaving death to salvation life.... But just experiencing God’s wonder and grace didn’t seem to mean much—most of them were defeated by temptation during the hard times in the desert, and God was not pleased.

The same thing could happen to us. We must be on guard so that we never get caught up in wanting our own way as they did. And we must not turn our religion into a circus as they did..." (from 1 Corinthians 10, Eugene Peterson's " The Message)
