Does it have one? It seems to be universal and come in all shapes and sizes. Are all the forms equivalent? Does each one count the same number of points? LOL. Does turning down a nice steak give you as many brownie points as turning down what seems to be an irresistible smile? Should we measure this the guilt we would feel if we gave in? food for thought!

the purpose of the temptation is to measure how strong you are ,,in every aspect in humans life.....because we cant tell or consider the temptation as one such us the temptation of the marriage life.temtaion is every where but in the end of the day the key is on our hands on how to handle that situation..because God did not give any test into us if we cannot bear it...

Temptations are very widespread in every man’s life. From the Old Testament to the New Testament, there was no single Christian whose belief was never tested. Temptations may or may not come at the same time. The whole book of Job contains a clear picture of this. Job was even tempted by his wife to condemn God since he, sick for a long time, was not immediately cured. Once we let ourselves fall into temptation, we worked hard for will be but nothing. Like in the workforce, if an employer finds out an employee’s anomalistic deeds, will he still get promotion which is supposed to be for him? Certainly he will not.
