temptations?


#1

i have thoughts popping up my mind and i am worried because they are not wholesome. i sometimes look down upon people for some stupid reasons but i soon realize that each person is created in the image of God. I feel pity for myself when i have these thoughts. do u think they can be considered as temptations?

they can be considered temptations/occassions for sin, yes. we all have those. the thing is not to give in and fall into sin:) you’re on the right track in realizing people are created in the image and likeness of God. we’ll be praying for you!

Try praying the St. Michael prayer when you are tempted:

St. Michael the archangel, defend us in battle, protect us from the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, O prince of the heavenly host by the power of God cast into hell satan and all evil spirits who prowl about the earth seeking the destruction of souls.

Well maybe its just your imagination, running away with you.

Sometimes in our life we all have pain, we all have sorrow. But if we are wise we know that there’s always tomorrow.

Just call on me brother when you need a hand…
You just might have a problem that we would understand.

There’s only one Temptaions

If I find myself being like this I usualy need to embrace a little humility and watch my temper. People can be so annoying sometimes, it can be a real challenge… (especialy in rush hour traffic :slight_smile: )
