A Bible verse for you

The business world can feel like the wilderness. But remain strong and look to the word of God for guidance!

Matthew 4:1-4
Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After he fasted forty days and forty nights he was famished. The tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become bread.” But he answered, “It is written, ‘Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Jesus goes to the wilderness and is tempted by Satan. Consider the magnitude that Jesus went 40 days alone, was tempted during that time by Satan, and remained without sin. Jesus could have changed the stones to bread, it was within His power to do so. Instead, He cites part of Deuteronomy 8:3, “So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.” (NKJV)
