If we have not faced our darkness, we are not good…merely fortunate. The account of Jesus’ temptations in the wilderness masterfully teach us to use our strengths to manage appetite, ego, and greed. We also learn the best way to manage temptation… to devote ourselves to the good we can do in the world.
Reading: Matthew 4; Luke 4-5; John 2-4
