AM Day 12 of 40 Days of Lamentations
PM Day 12 of 40 Days with Job
Set things right. We do so many things that we regret over the course of a year. And Lent is a good time to re-visit all this, and repent from them. I know that I need some repentance. There are some things we keep doing, and looking back, we again and again regret. Maybe a harsh word. Or a judgement. Or a misstep. But if we do it again and again, then we forget that we are not supposed to be doing it. We get hardened and emotionally detached from sin.
Lent is a good time to re-visit all those instances and do better. When faced with that occasion to verbally lash out, then bite your tongue. Or when you know that going down a path will lead you to a place you shouldn’t be, then turn the other way. We all know these truths. And now is a good time to brush off the dust and grime that is on these truths, to make the truth glow radiantly again.
