At church last Sunday, the pastor was giving a talk on the temptation of Christ, when the Spirit led Him into the wilderness.

The pastor brought out a big box and placed it on the pulpit as a visual example of temptation.

We were seated far to the right…far, far, far to the right. About 100 or so feet away from the pulpit. Mind you, this is a big sanctuary, filled with people.

My husband, who has never fully grasped that he has a lifeguard voice, whispered to me, “What’s in the box?”

The pastor stopped his sermon, turned to our area and said, “It’s a box of doughnuts, Steve.”
