Be alert. Watch and pray.

"Now the snake was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made."  (Genesis 3: 1 NABRE)

St Peter warns us:  "Be sober and vigilant. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion looking for [someone] to devour."   (1 Peter 5: 8)

What is your attitude to temptations?  Are you the type that likes to get to the very edge of the cliff?  Is playing with fire like a sport to you?

Now listen to Jesus:  “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.   The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."  (Matthew 26: 41 NIV)

Know yourself, your weak points. Satan knows these very well.  Be alert.  Watch and pray.
