“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them.” Matthew 6:1
I can’t help wondering whether blogging about our Lenten fast convicts me under this passage. To be truthful. I feel a little guilty about it. It feels too much like public piety—not something I love. So why am I blogging? Firstly, I want to make sure that we follow through on the self-reflection part of our Lenten discipline. Writing has always been a primary tool of reflection for me. It keeps my thinking honest. Secondly, there is accountability. I am guilty of falling off the fasting bandwagon come my birthday—which ALWAYS falls in the middle of Lent. By imagining readers (who may or may not exist), I’m held accountable to follow this all the way through to the end. God willing, of course.
