It springs from within you

1 March 2023

Sin isn’t an enemy that attacks from without, it’s an evil that sprouts and grows within you. ‘Look with prudence’ (Prov. 4, 25) and you won’t feel any vile desire. Remember the coming judgement and you’ll never be overcome by fornication, adultery, envy or any other iniquity. But if you forget God, then you’ll start having wicked thoughts and acting iniquitously.

Saint Cyril of Jerusalem
