Tempted As We Are

Temptation isn’t so much a matter of what it places before us as it is a matter of what it has us leave behind, what it has us ignore, Who it makes us forget and forsake. We see this in the first temptation in the garden in our OT reading today. “Did God actually say,…”

Then, in our Gospel reading of His temptation in the wilderness, we see that Jesus takes us back to where we need to be and places before us that which temptation would have us leave behind.
