TEMPTATION. . . . . Daniel 1:8 It is easier to resist temptation if you have thought through you convictions well before the temptation arises. Daniel and his friends made their decision to be faithful to the laws of their religion before they were face with the king’s delicacies, so they did not hesitate to stick with their convictions. Sometimes we get into trouble because we have not previously decided where to draw the line. Before such situations arise, decide on you commitments. Then, when temptation comes, you will be ready.
