Seeds of Truth – 1 Corinthians 10:13

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 Corinthians 10:13, NIV

What temptations have you struggled with? How did God help you and provide a way out? Did you follow Him? If you didn’t, what happened when you succumbed to the temptation? What did you learn? How did you grow?
