Making Good Choices
Paul knew that the believers were being tempted in many ways. So, he wrote a letter to assure them that God would always be with them. Paul taught that all people were tempted. Even if they felt strong, they should be careful, because they could fall into committing the same sins as any other person. The temptations they experienced were no different from what others experienced. Paul was teaching that all believers were responsible for trying to avoid temptation as much as possible.
Paul wanted to encourage the believers. "God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear," Paul said. This meant that God would keep the temptation from becoming so strong that the people could not stand up against it. God would show them a way out when they were tempted so that they would not give in to it.
