Chapter 30 – Dangerous Stuff – page 163

Have you ever seen a Bugs Bunny episode when Elmer Fudd is trying to hunt him down and he says something like: “Be vewwy, vewwy quiet… we’we hunting wabbits!”

Well, you know, for the devil, it’s always “rabbit season” and the Bible warns us that he’s always prowling around trying to find ways to tempt us to sin. So, just like Bugs Bunny had to get away from Elmer Fudd, we have to stay away from Satan and sin!

Did you know that even Jesus was tempted by the devil? (You can read about it in Matthew 4:1-11.) The amazing thing is that Jesus didn’t sin! He knew the devil was trying to trick Him and he resisted.

The daily Bible readings in this week’s chapter of Designer Genes will help you learn how to “say no” to sin, too… and God is always right there with you to give you strength and wisdom.

When you say no to sin and say yes to God, you’ll feel even happier than Bugs over here!

Before I sign off, here’s a link to a really good story/lesson about resisting temptation: http://www.sermons4kids.com/resisting_temptation.htm. At the bottom of the page you’ll find some links to colouring pages, puzzles and quizzes! 😀

Have a great week!
