Our pastor has been saying that Lent is the time to see our wounds, the wounds that keep us from Christ and to ask Jesus to fix them for us.
And I've been thinking about my pride. I am often proud of other people, proud of my husband. But C.S. Lewis said that was different then the pride that is in myself. The pride that makes me think that I'm always right.
The pride that makes me want to give charity but not BE charity. And there have been times in my life where I could have been charity, I think.
I am not above God's charity.
But I have done a lot of things on my own and I think that has made me somewhat prideful. I've been trying to ditch the pride for awhile, but it's hard. It's a hard habit to kick, you know?
I've been humbled by the thought and I've started to pray more for myself then I ever used to. But it's still a daily struggle.
Do you have wounds that need healing?
