Marilyn Trehearne, a twenty-two-year old London model was told that the tiger at a zoo where pictures were being taken, was tame. But when she tickled the animal, the tiger attacked and mauled her, ruining her career as a model. Often we too are tempted to tickle the tiger of bad habits, such as loose moral living, or addictions, only to be t rapped by them. Please don’t play with temptation. Turn to the One who can help you. He is always ready to listen. He promised—“call unto me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things…” A good place to start is with this prayer of a humble man, recorded in the Bible-“God be merciful to me a sinner.” Nobody who ever sincerely prayed that prayer has been refused. Please stop wherever you are, whatever you are doing and ask the Dear Savior to come into your life.
