Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7

Lent 1 - Year A

Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7

Satan tempts, G*D tempts, creatures tempt, relatives tempt.

You might get the idea that temptation is a baseline part of creation. Could it be any other way and still have a dynamic participation in a movement toward what is sensed as a better future?

Would you want to make a decision that wasn’t in some way related to knowing it was a good decision. Can that be done in any other way than in contrast with other options/temptations chosen against?

If there is not a temptation in a decision, it might be argued that there is no decision being made.

Bless your temptations. Against them you are more human. Being human is a good place to be - in the middle of yesterday’s rules and tomorrow’s wisdom.
