The Sin of Our Nature is Like a Sleeping Lion

The sin of our nature is like a sleeping lion, the least thing that awakens it makes it rage. Though the sin of our nature seems quiet, and lies as fire hid under the embers, yet if it be a little stirred and blown up by temptation, how quickly may it flame forth into scandalous evils! Therefore we need always to walk watchfully. “I say to you all, Watch” (Mk. 8:37). A wandering heart heeds a watchful eye. “A Body of Divinity” pg. 148
