Lions and Lambs
As we begin the month of March, we often quote the old saying, “in like a lion, out like a lamb.” Evidently, this proverb was originally related to astronomy (referring to the position of the constellations Leo and Aries in the night sky), but it soon became shorthand for the changing weather of March. I looked it up to see how often it’s true, and it turns out it’s generally pretty accurate. Perhaps that’s not surprising, since March is the month when we’re moving from winter into spring.
Our Lenten journey also moves ahead, as we delve deeper into our own self-reflection and learn new things about God’s work in our lives. Interestingly, in the church at this season, we also think of the Lion and the Lamb: Jesus, the Lion of Judah and the precious Lamb of God. As we continue in these days, let us turn our hearts toward Christ: the Lion, our strong conqueror and stalwart defender; and the Lamb, our sacrificial savior. May God be with you as you weather your own times of storm, and take new notice of the times of beauty, in this Lenten season.
