Christian character: taking the next strategic point

planting-the-flag-rambo-style-grannaGood and evil both increase at compound interest. That is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance. The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of. An apparently trivial indulgence in lust or anger today is the loss of a ridge or railway line or bridgehead from which the enemy may launch an attack otherwise impossible.

Quotes from Mere Christianity, Part 48
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (1952; Harper Collins 2001) 132.
