Trials and temptation (chapter 1)

James said that blessed is anyone who has endured temptation.  They have stood up to the test.  They will receive the crown of life that the Lord promised to those who loved him.  No one is tempted by God because God does not tempt people.  He cannot be tempted by evil.  Temptation comes from one’s own desires.  Temptations are alluring and enticing.  These desires conceive and give birth to sin.  However, that sin grows up and then gives birth to death.  Desires bring sin and death.  Do not be deceived!  Do you let your own desires tempt you?
