There are actually said to be 7 deadly sins of human which had been created as a result of their betrayal to God’s orders back when the very first mankind were created in the Garden of Eden: lust, greed, sloth, anger, gluttony, jealousy and pride. All these sins are always drawn to temptations which is the reason why human beings are easily lead down the wrong path especially when they do not possess a very strong faith in themselves. We may believe that we have done nothing wrong for the reason that we’re blinded by these said temptations but that is not really the case. We all need to be enlightened during our journey as we battle it out with sweet sinful temptations.

Be prepared and always equip yourself with God’s words of wisdom and let this become your added strength and armor. Regardless of how strong the enemy, regardless of how fairly sweet the temptation is, you will never yield. You’ll never fail.
Keep your faith strong and triumph these sinful temptations.
