During their 40 years wandering the desert, the Israelites developed a reputation for their own grumbling.
As we wander deeper into the wilderness of Lent, I wonder: when do you and I act immorally? Not if but when. When do we fail to glorify God with our bodies, sexually or otherwise?
As we press into this season of Lent, our first desert wondering is this: what are the idols in our lives? What are the influences of our own world that we easily revert to when things are hard or when God seems absent?
That’s our task over the these next few weeks. To avoid being laid low in the wilderness. To take heed. To receive the story of the Israelites as a cautionary tale of how not to follow after God.
Our daily habits and disciplines are changing us into people who can weather life’s ups and downs.
