The Three Lies Satan Tempts Us with

If you read the Gospels at all, at some point you’ll run into the temptation of Jesus, by Satan, in the desert, since the story is in three out of four of the books (Matthew 4: 1-11; Mark 1: 12, 13; and Luke 4: 1-13).

This is a picture of Archie the cat, whose expression of doubtful disdain is one we all can adopt when it comes to the many lies that are told us.

Like many accounts in the Bible, it’s easy to read through these quickly and say, “Oh, yeah, I’ve seen that before,” and not slow down to focus on what the passage is saying. What it’s saying, however, is pretty important to us, because it shows us the three major ways that Satan tempts, teases, and tortures us because those are the three options he offered to Jesus:

Jesus “was led by the Spirit in the desert, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil.” (Luke 4: 1)

What are these temptations?

Cooking for yourself is one of the easiest ways to start saving money, and cooking does not have to be time consuming or complicated. My book, Live Happily on Less, walks you, through a series of friendly essays, into the journey of living well, on what you have now.

In case you’re wondering, one of Satan’s lies has to do with money, and is it any surprise that we all feel like we don’t have enough of it? We have spent years perfecting, through hard earned experience, the art of living on little, and being grateful for everything we have.

I have written about this in my self-published book, Live Happily on Less, and through a series of bloggy essays, I describe a bit how we live — and it’s not so odd that others can’t pick up an idea or two and customize it to their lifestyle. You can look in the book at Amazon and read the first few pages. I’ve kept the price as reasonable as I can so that you can afford it and I can get something out of it.
