May 8

I know you've heard that saying "God doesn't give you more than you can handle." The saying is simply a misquote of scripture. The truth is that there are many things that we cannot handle, disease and death are a couple that I can think of right away. The scripture that this is referring to says that God doesn't give us temptation beyond what we can handle. God always leaves us an opening to get out of a situation without sinning. But, sometimes that choice is the hardest choice to make. It's like being on a diet and someone asks you to choose between chocolate cake and salad. Though salad is the healthier of the two choices, chocolate cake is a temptation that is very hard to resist. So, the next time you're faced with temptation, look for the opening that God gives you and choose that option, then there won't be any regrets in your decision later on. Now you can see how scripture is often mishandled.

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
