The Alamo is under
attack again. This time it is by termites. The news told the story of attempts
to protect the ancient mission and fort. Monitoring systems have been installed
underground. Traps filled with pieces of wood are to be monitored monthly. After
the termites are detected poisoned bait will be placed in the traps. How often
do the little things attack our life? We would be prepared for the big things.
We might even be tempted to ignore the small things. That would be a recipe
for disaster. Even the small sins need to be detected and defeated.
