Fable of the Holy Man

Fable of the Holy Man
The Devil was crossing the Libyan Desert when he came across a group of
junior devils that were tempting a holy man. They tried to tempt him
with the flesh, with doubts, with fear, and then with lies. But, nothing
they did could tempt the holy man to sin. The Devil asked the junior
demons to step aside so that he might show them how to get at the old
man. The Devil leaned forward and whispered in the man's ear, "Have you
heard the news?
Your brother has just been made Bishop of Alexandria." With that, the
cloud of jealousy clouded the now not-so-holy man's face - and the Devil
had him.
Don't be jealous, you just giving the devil another one more reason to celebrate
