Drawing closer

I'll admit that when I am unjustly accused, my human nature wants to defend myself.  I want to stand up in righteous indignation.

But in my quieter moments, I think of the trials of our Lord.  How, when he was accused, he never defended himself, saying only "you say so" to his accusers.

I pray that today, I can be relieved of my indignation and allow this small crucifixion to draw me nearer to him.  Lent is an especially good time to examine my own sins and try to forgive those who sin against me, as I have been forgiven by God.
