A Voice from the Past - Ambrose

Let not, therefore, expediency get the better of virtue, but virtue of expediency, By expediency here I mean what is accounted so by people generally.

Ambrose, Duties of the Clergy, Book III, Chapter VI, (translated by Rev. H. De Romestin, The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Philip Schaff and Henry Wace, T & T Clark and Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishers, 1997, p. 73).

What is involved in putting expediency first in our lives? How can we avoid it?
