Ash Wednesday – A, B, C

Ash Wednesday – A, B, C

Years A, B, C
Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21

Integrity in the small matters is important for an overall sense of well-being. Warnings about secrecy are not so much a matter of hyper-humility, but acting with integrity. What needs doing is done, straight-forwardly. When action is simply a matter of course and not being played for ulterior gain (whether consciously or not) there is a reward of wholeness of being. And, what better reward is there? It is priceless.

This sense of the language of secrecy comes to the fore when the question of hypocrisy is raised. We are not looking for unknownness, but wholeness. A show is not in order, whether that show is unseen or posed. Knowing where your heart is is a great reward.

you been practicing your sexual orientation again?
nope, when you're this good practice isn't the issue
you still practicing breaking a bad habit?
yep, don't know that I'll ever not be a xxxx-ist

there are things that come quite naturally
in a healthy way
there are things that come quite naturally
that destroy

we are told our nature is unnatural
forced into hypocrisy by family
we find our nature to be righteously right
our left left no choice but secrecy

finally we face the difficulty
practicing the practice of wholeness
in all we do and refrain from doing
without simply practicing practicing
