temptations and the devil

how fitting that i should give a lesson on matthew chapter 4 this week. this is where Christ is tempted by satan three times. i've learned so very much while preparing this lesson! how beautiful it is that christ experienced the three categories of temptations that He would be able to understand all that we go through!
appetite, pride, and power
every temptation we endure is categorized under one (or more!) of these three temptations. Here is a rendition of the temptation i feel plagues me most often.
