Lent: Open

Some of the happiest people I know are the ones who are open to new ideas, new people, new experiences, other viewpoints and even the possibility that they are wrong. Every moment to them is a chance to learn, to discover, and to grow as a human being.

And isn't that close to the heart of God? The book of Revelation describes the pearly gates as always open, and it hardly can be said that God is closed off. He embraced the experience of being human, with all its weaknesses and disappointments; welcomes everyone who comes to him, no matter where we are from or what we have done; and even lets us convince him to change his mind.
