Many believe that to be tempted is a sin. This is actually not true, because temptation is common and falling for the temptation could either be a sin or it could lead to a sin. Temptation and avoiding it are basics of all religions. This is an article that talks about the various temptations that we may be facing in our life and the tips to resist temptation.

Resisting temptation is not very easy. So this article might be useful for people who often are unable to resist temptation. This will give a few hints to resist temptation, but the ultimate action and the will power is the individuals' effort.

1. Remember the reward: The pleasure of din is for a season, but the reward is eternal. Any person who falls into sinful behaviour may be able to be happy only for a few days, but for those who resist temptation, the reward is great. The person has peace of mind, which is an immediate reward.

2. Believe the evil of sin: Sin is evil and sinful nature is despicable. Each religion has different meanings for sin. All the religions believe that sinful behaviour is evil.

3. Do not love money: Next to pride, money can lead to sinful behaviour. The want for more money makes people to cheat and even go to the extent of killing. So if we do not love money, but just use it wisely, then we will be able to resist temptation.

4. Stay busy: When a person is busy, there is no time to sin. The person keeps themselves busy and does not sin. When there is not much work to do, the evil mind schemes and tries to indulge in sinful behaviour.

5. Care for your health: Temptation often comes in our weakest moments. When we are at the limit of our strength, patience, love and health, we are tempted by various forces. Most arguments and fights within the family occur when the spouses are tired and hungry. Getting enough sleep and eating good food helps us to fight and resist temptation.

6. Love God and your family: The best tactic to resist and overcome temptation is to think of God and the sayings of your religion against sin and sinful behaviour. Next think of your family who need all your love and support. This will keep you from sinning. It will also give you the strength to overcome the temptation and resist it.

These are a few of the most useful and important tips that will help a person to resist temptation.
