45 Things You Can Do When You Are Tempted

As humans, we are all inclined to sin because of our sinful nature. Different people have different temptations. For a lot of men, porn and sex are strong temptations. For an alcoholic seeking sobriety, drinking is a strong temptation. For somebody who has depression, the temptation to cut may be present. Temptations are most strong when one is tired, bored, or stressed out. There is a way to overcome the temptation. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it” (NIV). The temptation will pass, but you have to find an alternative way to occupy your time.
