Fight Valiantly

One cannot simply cry out, “Lord! Deliver me from evil!”
when he himself has caused that evil to fall upon himself.
No one can pray, “Lead me not into temptation,”
and afterwards seek to be ensnared by that temptation.
You cannot ask God to make you grow in the faith
while you continuously neglect His means of grace.
You see, you just can’t ask someone to save you from burning
when you insistently keep on setting your own clothes on fire.
