Today's photo reminds me of how hard it is to resist temptation. Sometimes the allure of doing absolutely the wrong thing is almost irresistible.

Now the Bible has some nice reassurance for people who overcome that temptation, but it didn't mention cute little doggies. I am hoping this little boy can resist!!! He may not care about "the Crown of Life" anyway. 

The Bible promise, contained in the Book of Luke says:   

“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.”

“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:”

“Count it all joy, my brethren, when ye fall into temptations;   knowing that the proving of your faith worketh patience.  And let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing.”     

That cake looks awfully good!   And the puppy is being a very good, very patient  boy.
