Saintly Advice - Do Not Listen to Those Who Oppose God's Voice

St. Isidore

The strength of temptation usually lies in the fact that its object is something flattering to our pride, soothing to our sloth, or in some way attractive to the baser passions.

St. Isidore teaches us to listen neither to the promptings of nature nor the plausible advice of friends, when they contradict the voice of God.
