A Los Angeles Cab driver recently found $350,000 of uncut, untraceable diamonds in a bag in his cab. He told reporters that keeping the loot never entered his mind, even though his wife loves diamonds and he dreams of opening a restaurant. “God is up there… He always watches.”
The next time temptation is near at hand think of that LA cab driver and remember to look up to the Heavens for the strength and remember that “God is up there… He always watches.”
If you think you are strong, you should be careful not to fall. The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, he will also give you a way to escape so that you will be able to stand it.
1 Corinthians 10:12-13
