Have you ever noticed that when we are tempted – rarely is the choice between doing good or evil – we are usually more clever than to blatantly choose evil and typically more committed to the ways of Christ. And, honestly, who wants the consequences that come with deliberately choosing evil in our lives. We are generally really good people who want to make wise choices for ourselves, and for the sake of our global family and the planet.
This Lent we are invited to gather treasures – to store up for ourselves treasures in heaven and let go of storing up treasures on earth that do not last anyway. So, what treasure could we possibly find in temptation? I wonder what we might unearth in the Desert with Jesus.
