Guard Duty

Guard Duty

Strength without humility is useless and impotent.

Our lack of humility is the result of our dishonesty.
We exaggerate our self-importance and achievements,
and distort the truth about
our real impoverishment and sinfulness.

If Jesus was poor and humble, shouldn’t we be also?

Be ever conscious of your deficiency and helplessness.
Pray for grace.

Arrogance and pride peddle the lie
that we do not need to pray.

Moderate your pleasures; practice self-denial.

Guard your senses;
they are portals
through which sin can enter the soul.
