Taking Advantage of Our Natural Laziness

Indwelling sin takes advantage of our natural laziness and negligence in spiritual things, enticing us to lay aside spiritual duties one by one.  It won’t at first get God completely out of our minds.  But it will talk us into thinking of him less and less, making us think we can get by with a little less prayer, shorter or fewer private devotions – until he at last convinces us that we can get along without talking to God at all.

– Kris Lundgaard, The Enemy Within: Straight Talk About the Power and Defeat of Sin, copyright 1998, page 116
