We know temptation. We know how it feels to be tempted. We know our triggers. We know (or should know) how to successfully isolate the triggers. We need to teach these skills to our students. We need to talk about their triggers and help them map out a plan to isolate and navigate around them. We can use how we deal with our temptation for their good. This requires openness on a higher level, though. Are you willing to go there?

Words of wisdom: Do this in small groups of the same gender as you. Be wise in what you share and what you don’t share. Be careful that your teaching does not become a trigger or plant new ways to sin in the minds of students.
