Temptation

Andy Stanley did a series in 2006 called Pause. I have listened to it a few times and taught a lot of it to my guys over the years.  (Watch it on YouTube.)

The series is about temptation and about how to resist temptation. In the series he tells a story about the old test of putting cookies in front of kids and seeing if they can hold out for a greater reward.

Here is a recent video that is a great example of temptation and is very fun to watch. They use about a dozen kids and tempt them with marshmallows.  The findings from the 70’s found those who resisted ended up with more “successful” lives as adults than those who fell to the temptation.

We will video our kids to find out their future and post it soon.

Until then…enjoy.
