January 3, 2015 | Daily Devotionals | January 3

Attraction to the female body is a natural, God-given desire.  It’s natural for you to find a woman’s beauty tugging at your eyes for attention.

The temptation, however, is to fulfill these desires and attractions in a wrong way and to go beyond a natural and normal outlook. That means viewing a woman more as an extremely interesting collection of body parts rather than as a precious child of God. You know when you’re thinking about her mostly as a pair of breasts walking by, and little else.

 

We’re tempted in many wrong ways to play with these natural desires and attractions to women. Obviously, stripping off a woman’s clothes if she is not your wife is a wrong way, but it’s just as wrong to stare lustfully at her and fantasize in your mind. Neither practice is any more pure than the other.

 

Today I will be conscious of the natural temptations that surround me, and I will refuse to give in to them. Instead, I will focus my attention on the purity that will set me free to live fully and to avoid dangerous traps.
