Thought For Today - August 10
 What did Jesus say? - About tempting God, to Prove him?

    What did Jesus say about tempting or trying to prove God?
While Jesus was fasting in the wilderness, he was tempted by the devil to prove whether or not he was truly the son of God. If he was, in fact God, then it seemed reasonable to him that he could throw himself down from the pinnacle of the temple and he would not be harmed, thus proving God's word and promise that God would keep him from all harm.
    Jesus said: "It is written again, thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God." Matthew 4: 7.
That which God has told us in his word is true and to be believed, and must be accepted and taken by faith. We are not to tempt God by trying to prove him. God cannot be proved by any human effort.
    Many times in our daily lives and activities, we have a tendency to want to prove God and his love for us. We sometimes challenge his authority, and when we do, we get into deep trouble. God has given to us certain laws which must be obeyed, both physical and spiritual. When we disobey these laws we must suffer the consequences.
    Let us always remember what Jesus said, that it is written in the word of God that we are not to tempt or try to prove the Lord our God.
