Matthew 4:7 NASB "Jesus said to him, “On the other hand, it is written: ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’”"How far can you go? Today's verse speaks to us about not putting our God to the test, some great advice unless we want to see the wrath of God! We were young boys at the time and as we came to the edge of a cliff, we each tried to see how far we could go before our fear of falling stopped us. We were testing each other to see who could go farther, who had more "guts". It was just plain stupid to see who could get farther on the edge, the result of this foolishness was death if we fell over the edge! Thank God we stopped before anyone got hurt! Testing God, to see how far we can go in temptation before we fall is just plain foolish. It's always a slippery slope to try and see if we can go past the limit of where God says "stop"! Let's not test the Lord or each other in foolishness but stand firm on His Word to live another day! peace, tom
