Temptation: Can You Overcome Lust?

Temptation: Can You Overcome Lust?



Temptation is the desire to do something, especially something wrong or unwise. It’s a course of action that attracts or tempts someone. Being tempted does not make you a bad person. We all experience it. What really matters is how we act when tempted.

Every day, television, movies, billboards, newspapers and magazines bombard us with lustful images. Each of us is born with a normal, natural set of desires. The physical desires are the consequence of the operation of our bodies. We also have spiritual desires, such as not wanting to be alone, wanting to be liked by others, or wanting something pretty.

Most affairs result from dissatisfaction with the marital relationship, fueled by temptation and opportunity. Hunger is a desire, it is neither right nor wrong. Temptation is when you are in the convenience store and see a candy bar, but realize you don’t have enough money to pay for it. Lust is when you tell yourself that the store can afford to lose some items and that they are expecting some loss. Or telling yourself that you could pocket it now and pay for it later and you accept that these are adequate justification to steal.
The decision happens when you decide to walk out with the candy bar without paying for it.

Temptation Vs. Lust

  1. Temptation: When we are placed in situations where it appears that the satisfaction of a desire will require a decisions to be made.
  2. Lust (desire conceived): When a person mentally consents that their marital vows is worth satisfying the desire, then the person has moved into the realm of lust. This is when the person justifies to himself or herself that breaking their vows can be excused, at least in some situations.

Men Are Tempted to Lust. However, women Are Tempted to Be Lusted After.
