Are you tempted to over-indulge on deserts? I am easily lured by the tantalizing appearance of sweets. My logic may be whispering warnings, but my cravings are shouting sensational. I know they offer only temporary satisfaction, yet the sugar rush of the moment outweighs common sense.
Sadly, we can also fall victims to temptations to binge on gossip. "The words of a talebearer are like tasty trifles, And they go down into the inmost body (NKJ)." We eat, swallow half truths as undisputed truth and give them a place to settle and sour our spirits. Lord, give me the wisdom to avoid gossip and turn to truth for lasting fulfillment.
