Sermon Illustrations: Temptation

Baboons are inquisitive creatures. In order to catch one in the Kalahari Desert, the bushman digs a hole in solid rock large enough for a baboon's hand to pass through while extended. He does this while making sure the baboon is watching then drops in some nuts. The baboon is so curious that after the man has gone, he comes down to investigate and puts his hand in the hole to get the nuts. Once his hand is in, the bushman comes running to catch him, because as much as the baboon wants to escape he will not let go of what's in his hand and he cannot get his clenched fist back through the hole.
