How Should We Meet Our Tests?

From the Bible:

Jesus during his temptations in the wilderness overcame them, and thereby set an example for all time, by clinging the more determinedly to God… The Bible tells us therefore that at last, “The devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.”

 

From the Bhagavad Gita in the third Chapter:

As fire is hidden by smoke, as a mirror is dulled by rust, and as an embryo is enclosed in the womb, so is the indwelling Self enveloped by desire.
