There was a crafty serpent in the garden,
Too clever to strike his direct target,
He aimed to tempt the wife of Adam,
Then Eve sowed the seed of the devil’s harvest.
Learn the lesson of good and faithful Job,
When his wife told him to curse God and die,
He remembered the grace God had bestowed,
He didn’t sin against the God Most High.
Satan opposed Jesus through Peter’s words,
He tempted the Lord to shrink from death,
Jesus wasn’t enticed to self-preserve,
He loved all mankind with His dying breath.
Beware! Temptation will always comes along,
Remember God’s love, stand firm, and stay strong.
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”—1 Corinthans 10:13
