This Might be the Best Trick the Devil has Up His Sleeve

. . .do you remember this proverb?  “Idle hands are the Devil’s workshop.”  What about an idle mind?  What kind of mischief can the Devil stir up in a mind that is “idle,” that is, one that is not guided by virtues & grace & busy with what is True, Good & Beautiful?  Such an unoccupied mind will soon find itself occupied with what is dark, despairing, &, at the worst—damning. . .
