How do we deal with temptation? How do we deal with forgiving others?
Remember our Lord’s prayer. Mat 6:9-13 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Jesus promiseed us that He will help us in these times of Temptation. Always seek Jesus in your times of Temptation.
Lord, we need You. When I know I cannot get the victory You are there to lift me.
Lord help us to be on our guard. Be prayerful with the things we say and do.
Remember we are to be ready to forgive. Up to 490 times a day. If you have a hard time with this, ask our Lord Jesus to increase your faith.
Lord help us to grow in the areas we need. Give us Your grace to grow in Your love, mercy, and Joy.
Humility is profitable. Jesus tells us the greatest in His Kingdom are those who serve the most.

Luke 17:1-10 NKJV Then He said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come!” It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him.” And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.” And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.” So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.” And which of you, having a servant plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come at once and sit down to eat’?” But will he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare something for my supper, and gird yourself and serve me till I have eaten and drunk, and afterward you will eat and drink’? Does he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I think not.” So likewise you, when you have done all those things which you are commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants. We have done what was our duty to do’.
