If you are what you eat, then if you eat
Won't you be angry?

Jesus endured temptation for 40 days, so that He could relate to us
Because He himself suffered when He was tempted, He is able to help those who are being tempted.
Jesus knows the struggle, as He experienced it first hand, yet never succumbed to it
