First Sunday of Lent Weekend of February 25 & 26

In today’s Gospel reading we listen to the confrontation
between Jesus and the devil, who thought he might tempt
Jesus to forget who he was and commit a grievous sin
when he was most vulnerable. Jesus had just spent 40 days
and nights out in the desert, alone, away from civilization.
He was hungry, thirsty, and tired. If there ever was a time
to tempt Jesus, that was it. Temptations to sin come at us
every day, from many directions and in many different
forms. When the temptation to sin tries to overcome us,
how do we react? Do we consciously remind ourselves
that we are followers of Christ? Is there a time this week
when you have needed to confront a temptation to sin?
What lessons did you take away from the experience?
