Temptation is not a sin. Temptation is a normal human desire. Acting on that temptation becomes the sin. Jesus was tempted. The key is that Jesus chose temptation as an opportunity to do what is right. We must not see temptation as already doing something wrong or that will only lead to further wrong actions. We must see temptation as a yellow light while driving. We can either interpret the yellow as a shade of green and speed up and run the inevitable red light. Or we can see the yellow light as its intended warning and STOP. The more often we choose to do what is right when faced with wrong choices, the easier it becomes to do what is right and less guilt we have and less time spent trying to bring our self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth back from negativity.
