Let no man say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil; neither does He tempt anyone. But each man is tempted when he is drawn away by his own lust and enticed.
James 1:13-14 MEV
It seems like no one wants to take responsibility for their emotions or actions. The blame game is the normal these days.
People blame God or others for every character weakness, problem, frustration or temptation they are facing.
The simple truth is that they are narcissistic, self-centered, pampered, self-focused and unrestrained. Jesus came to set us free from such and calls us to be holy for our God is holy.
We are enabled to control ourselves and expected to do so. After all self-control is just controlling ourselves.
He who has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls. Proverbs 25:28 MEV
I can do all things because of Christ who strengthens me.Philippians 4:13 MEV
