God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Rules - 1:11

11.  Never consider any sin as unimportant or of no account.  First of all, every sin however small & insignificant it may appear is nevertheless a transgression against the supreme majesty of God.  Secondly, a small sin that is loved can condemn a man just as well as a gross sin.  A small leak if not repaired can sink a ship in time.


Likewise, even the smallest sin if it is cherished & not repented of, can bring a man down to hell.  Beware then not only of great sins but of small ones as well.  Make a habit of overcoming the least of sins so that you can be master of the great ones, too.  Especially shun willful sinning lest you provoke God to anger, for it is hard to obtain forgiveness for sins that are willfully committed.
