Yes passivity or callit by an uglier word, Laziness is the cause of half my defaeat. I never need be defeated I know quite well. Victory all the rest of teh day. This bears out what I have been learning… When you are weak and feel unable to free yourself from the power of sin – just up and sing a song., or shout a determined note of defiance against the enemy, then roll up your sleeves and do some good Lisu study! Lack of this spirit brings defeat. Moral: Try to find God’s balance between prayer and work.
