"One does not live on bread alone,
but on every word that comes forth
from the mouth of God." ..."Again it is written, You shall not put the Lord, your God, to the test."
The overall themes of this scripture passage is that we need to be like Jesus and resist the temptations by the devil. At the beginning of our Lenten journey we came up with something to give up so we can grow closer to God. Throughout our journey, we will want to give into the temptations of our material goods. We should trust in God that we will save us from our sins and that this time is for us to grow in our faith.
Something new I learned from the passage is that everyone, including Jesus, will find temptation. It is up to us to find the strength through God. We should have full trust in our God that He will take care of us.
Throughout our Lenten journey, we are going to be tempted into doing what we gave up for Lent. Even in everyday life at school we may be tempted to indulge in sinful things. In this reading, we see Jesus stay strong with full faith in his Father. We are called to be like Jesus and stay strong. God is strong and will forgive us when we fall to temptation, but we still must try to resist and live a Holy life.
