Beautiful, Yet Deadly



























Gazing upon these beautiful mushrooms, one forgets, if eaten they can be deadly. Isn't that the way with other things in this world? Temptations are not usually ugly. If they were we would not be tempted by them.

"Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak." Mark 14:38

May we stand strong in the face of temptation, keeping our eyes fully focused on GOD!

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Andrea

Hi Andrea! I hope all is going well. Those mushrooms scare me when I see them and I didn't know they were poison. I am always telling the kids don't touch any mushrooms outside.
This was a great post and so true.

Yes! So important to remember that it is His grace that sees us through the temptations in our lives.

And even when we fail God is greater than our greatest failures! What an awesome God we serve!
