Lead Us Not into Temptation (Friday)

discipline

I see a connection between “lead us not into temptation” and the 23rd Psalm:

Psalm 23:3, 6 (ESV)
He leads me in paths of righteousness . . .
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life.

In a sermon I heard long ago, the pastor described a shepherd with his trusty sheep dogs, Goodness and Mercy. Imagine Goodness and Mercy nipping at your ankles every time you veer towards temptation!
