A LITTLE NEGLIGENCE
“A little negligence in the service of God is sufficient for the devil to make us lose much merit.
A little negligence in resisting temptation is sufficient for the devil, to make us forthwith fall into sin.
A little negligence in correcting our venial faults is sufficient for the devil, to make us fall into much more serious faults.
Let us make the good resolution to-day, to continue watchful, to abstain from all deliberate sins, even venial ones, keeping in mind this maxim:
IN THE DEVIL’S HAND, LITTLE BECOMES MUCH.”
– St Francis de Sales
