A woodpecker is a very interesting bird. The loud rat-a-tat-tat noise he makes as he drills into trees in search of bugs to eat always attracts attention.
The secret of his success is simple. When a woodpecker finds a suitable tree, he begins to drill a hole. If the wood is too hard or no bugs are found, he simply moves over a bit and starts again. Over and over he continues, until he meets with success.
The evil One uses temptation in much the same way. He will try one temptation on us and then if not successful, will move over a bit and try another.
And so he will continue, over and over again, until he finds a soft spot in us that he can use to his advantage.
About the only time losing is more fun than winning……
Is when you’re fighting temptation.
