Lent: Thursday, March 16
Posted on March 16, 2017 by Mike Wu

For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do.
- Romans 7:19

This confession of Paul is classic, isn’t it? We have all made good resolutions, perhaps like those with which we began this Lent, and then vice rears its ugly head and we fail. It is no reason to give up. Rather it should be a spur to carry on since we obviously have work still to do.

Let us pray for the courage to keep the good in focus, even if we haven’t yet succeeded.
