Today's Maxwell Quote

From A More Excellent Way (1967), 65:
But sometimes we let our moods maul our faith, and a mood of hopelessness can ensnare us and prevent one from starting the journey back to full fellowship with God. One can certainly be entrapped by the adversary in dramatic ways, but the economy of temptation apparently does not require drama, if minor moods serve the same purpose. Major sin can destroy an individual quickly, but a sustained feeling of hopelessness can cause slow spiritual suicide with the same ultimate result.
