“Cool Your Jets, Boys!”
Psalm 75: 4, 5: “I said to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn; do not lift up your horn on high, do not speak with insolent pride.’” One of the purposes of Lent, beginning with Ash Wednesday, is to remind us of our mortality. We aren’t superchristians, not everything centers on us, and we aren’t omniscient in our thoughts. God brings these things to us in various ways; gently at first, then louder if necessary. But if we are to share in His righteousness, we must learn them!
