James 1:12-15

 12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. 14 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.

*God is a straight forward God, and does not provide us with temptation or confusion. If we are confused, we need to ask for wisdom. If we are tempted, it's because our flesh wants to surrender to our own desires. There is always the truth, which provides a way out. Whether we choose to obey it is our choice. We choose to do the right thing, or bring extra and unnecessary hardships on ourselves. Either choice brings consequences as we continue to indulge in a specific type of behavior or choice, but whether that choice is positive or not is up to us. Everything we do is because we have chosen to do so...What choices are you making today? Is it really in line with His will? Will it help or hurt you in the long wrong? Are you really considering the best option, even if it is one that is not appealing? Is your treatment of others coming from the effects of your choices? Being honest with ourselves will get us more clarity and better results, than hiding behind ignorance when you know the truth....
