When I Am Tempted

“When I Am Tempted,” Friend, May 2006, 46

When I Am Tempted

I went with my friend to the store, and my friend stole some candy. He asked, “Do you want some?” I said no because I knew that he had done something wrong. Because of my example, my friend put the candy back. When I was little, I was tempted to steal candy and other things that I wanted. But now when I am tempted I remember how much better I feel when I choose the right.
