What to do when this fact falls on your lap? What to say when you're faced with this situation? It is indeed every mans challenge! In fact, this problem affects more the men than the women. I would like to use again David's example." One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a women bathing. The women was very beautiful and David sent someone to find out about her.(II Samuel 11:2-3). Well , you probably know what happened after that.There are many temptations in this world but few have the strength to to sway a man's heart as a beautiful attractive woman. Now, was David innocent? Did he "undelibelirately" walk onto the roof of the palace and by chance saw Bat-seba bathing?
On the time of spring David sent the army to war against the Ammonites and where was David?
In Jerusalem! Along with being in the wrong place at the wrong time he probably knew in advance of what would happen if he walked up onto that roof and what he would see. Certainly this is the battle for all men. Josh MacDowell once said: "Show me a man who can control sexual temptation and I'll show you someone who can control all the other areas of his life". However, we must be strong and realize that this is battle can't be won without constant discipline of the mind and strong support. Therefore, there is no better place to get started than turning your eyes onto Jesus and reading the scriptures daily and constantely, but don't forget that added help comes form christian fellowship, be sure to get together with you friends, men that can support you. A proverb just for men admonishes: "Do not give your strength to women, nor your ways to that which destroys Kings. (Proverbs 31:3). Remember, it is a true battle to face this and at many times you will find your self surrounded by this temptation. However, at times like this, know that you have a Loving Father and you need to turn you hope and thoughts on Him.
