Our theme in church this morning was temptation, so I shared the following short story:
A young boy was in a grocery store eyeing up some juicy apples. The owner of the store spotted him and figured he was up to no good. So he approached him and asked: “What are you up to?”
“Me, sir? Nothing,” came the reply.
“Nothing?” asked the owner. “I think you were trying to take one of those apples”
To which the boy replied, “No, you’ve got it wrong, mister. I’m trying not to take one of those apples.”
