As Jesus is tempted in Matthew 4, we see Jesus’ example to us on how to combat temptation in our lives. Jesus focuses on the necessity rather than the want. He shows the devil there are things we need in this life as opposed to what we want, which is only something we think we need. The most important thing Jesus shows us is that we are to focus on God’s purpose for our lives. If we focus on anything other than fulfilling our purpose, then we are focusing on the wrong thing.
