God allows temptation

August 17

“[God] allows temptation, and uses it providentially
to purify you, to make you holy, to detach you more from the things of the earth, to lead you where He is and by the route He wants you to take, so as to make you happy (in a life which may not be comfortable).”

~S. Canals


For Reflection:

According to this quote, why does God permit us to be tempted? List them. What temptation most assails me now? Am I cooperating with grace so that God’s reasons for the temptation can be realized in me? (See tomorrow’s Grace Line for other reasons why God allows temptation).
