Lent 2010, Day 34

The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him;
the cords of his sin hold him fast.
He will die for lack of discipline,
led astray by his own great folly.
Proverbs 5:22-23

Today we look at discipline once more just before the onset of Holy Week. Again we value the wisdom inherent in a Holy observance of Lent: to avoid being led astray by our own foolishness. Self help books currently offer secular versions of improving one's habits and attitudes, but Christians have had the Church to teach, lead, and guide us into happier, more fruitful lifestyles every spring for the last 2000+ years.
