Always be on guard...

"We will never be free of trials and temptations as long as our earthly life lasts.  For Job has said: "Is not the life of human beings on earth a drudgery?"  (Job 7:1).  Therefore, we should always be on our guard against temptations, always praying that our enemy, the devil "who never sleeps but constantly looks for someone to devour." (1 Pet 5:8), will not catch us off guard."
