Friday 4th Week of Lent

Wow! today is a lesson in not wanting to change—to hear that we have erred. In the Book of Wisdom, a plot is forming to destroy the prophet who reproves those in the wrong. The wicked say that “merely to see him is a hardship for us”. Jesus is facing mounting disdain for his message, too. So, I was wondering about myself. How well do I take criticism? How do I react when something I’ve done wrong is brought before me? There is a lesson in humility here. Do I lash out, making excuses, or do I accept the reproval humbly and amend my ways, thanking the other for giving me that opportunity? More soul searching.
