"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin." ESV
So many times, we get caught up in our troubles and either ask God why or we beg Him to relieve us. If this world was such temptation and difficulty for our Lord, why would we think we should be trouble free? Jesus Christ showed us how to endure the trials and temptations of this world without sinning. Then He said, "Follow me."
Lord, we are humbled at our forgetful and selfish minds. We forget that You went through far more than we ever will in this world. We expect a special, easy journey because we are Your children, but our attitude is so prideful. Help us to follow in Your footsteps as we go through trials and temptations here in this world. We ask in Your name, Amen.
