I was reading the Other day about when the British and French were fighting in Canada in the 1750s

Admiral Phipps, commander of the British fleet, was told to anchor outside Quebec.

He was given orders to wait for the British land forces to arrive, then support them when they attacked the city.

Phipps’ navy arrived early.

As the admiral waited, he became annoyed by the STATUES OF THE SAINTS that adorned the towers of a nearby cathedral, so he commanded his men to shoot at them with the ships’ cannons.

No one knows how many rounds were fired or how many statues were knocked out, but when the land forces arrived and the signal was given to attack, the admiral was of no help.

He had used up all his ammunition shooting at the “saints.”

Unfortunately, the same could be said for many Christians today.

When God calls on them to do something great for Him they have

nothing left to give for they have used up their ammunition

shooting at other saints.
