    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Wednesday, July 3

    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Each one is tried by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire.[/FONT] —[FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Jas. 1:14.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    Jesus’ example teaches us to
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] be willing to suffer shame and[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] not to put too much importance[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]on our personal reputation. [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif](Heb. 12:2)[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Also, when tempted by Satan,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Jesus saw beyond the immediate[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]temptation and considered[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] the consequences of his actions.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    He relied on God’s Word and also
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] used Jehovah’s name. When we[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] are faced with temptations to do[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]things that are displeasing to Jehovah,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] on what do we focus our[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] attention? The more we focus on[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]the temptation, the stronger that[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] wrong desire will be. [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif](Jas. 1:15)[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] We need to take quick action to[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]root out the desire, even if that[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] action may seem as drastic as,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] in effect, removing a part of our[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]body. [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif](Matt. 5:29, 30)[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]

    Like Jesus,
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] we need to focus on the consequences[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] of our actions—how they[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] will affect our relationship with[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Jehovah. We must recall what his[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Word, the Bible, says. Only in this[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] way can we prove that Jehovah is[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]the most important Person in our[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] life.
