every day is judgement day

"aint you old enough to have learnt that yet for yourself? don't everything you do, everything you have ever done, work itself out right or wrong before your eye and usually before the sun has set? have you ever got by with anything? no you aint nor ever thought you would," he said. "you might as well drink all that liquor since you've already drunk so much. once you pass the moderation mark you've passed it, and that gyration you feel working down from the top of your brain, " he said, "that's the hand of God laying a blessing on you. He has given you release. that old man was the stone before your door and the Lord has rolled it away. he ain't rolled it quite far enough yet, of course. you got to finish up yourself but He's done the main part. praise Him." You Can't Be Any Poorer Than Dead --Flannery O'Connor
